Hello Jeff,

Almost... ;-)
I used your trick with recursion and finally my problem is solved. 

Inside my "table_template" now I call recursive template, that builds 
specified row structure.

<xsl:variable name="separator">;</xsl:variable>

<xsl:template name="build_table_rows">
 <xsl:param name="node_list"/>
 <xsl:variable name="a_node_name"

 <xsl:call-template name="row_template">
   <!-- this is the template, I used to create one table row.
   I can pass some parameters to this template and everything 
   works fine -->
   <xsl:with-param name="nodename">
     <xsl:value-of select="$a_node_name"/>
   <xsl:with-param name="nodevalue">
    <xsl:value-of select="//*[local-name()=$a_node_name]"/>
 <xsl:if test="substring-after($node_list,$separator)!=''">
  <xsl:call-template name="build_table_rows">
    <xsl:with-param name="node_list"><xsl:value-of


Now I have exactly what I wanted: one, easy-to-configure template for all
tables. I can call this template several times and create a table that contains data from nodes I specified.

Thanks a lot for your help and patience ;-)
