Assuming that you are trying to create some XML that looks like:

  <attribute name="rate" value="USD32.99" />

where 'USD' is the value of the iso_currency_code element and 32.99 is
the net_amount, then you should use an attribute value template. I'd
be tempted to wrap it in an xsl:for-each so that you don't have to
write the entire path out again:

    <attribute name="rate" value="{iso_currency_code}{.//net_amount}" />

You could use xsl:attribute instead to create the value attribute, but
it just means more code:

    <attribute name="rate">
      <xsl:attribute name="value">
        <xsl:value-of select="iso_currency_code" />
        <xsl:value-of select=".//net_amount" />

I hope that helps,
