Hello All,

I'm trying to convert an XML document to HTML using XSLT. The problem is I
want to use the value of an attribute as a value for an attribute of an html
node. Here is an example.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<schema xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema";>
    <element name="Person">
                <element name="surname" type="string" maxLength="10"/>
                <element name="firstname" type="string" maxLength="10"/>
                <element name="middlename" type="string" maxLength="10"/>
                <element name="gender" type="string"/>
                <element name="dob" type="string" maxLength="10"/>

I would like to take an element:
	<element name="surname" type="string" maxLength="10"/>

and generate an html input field using the values of the attributes name,
and maxLength ie:
	<input type="text" name=$SURNAME  maxlength=$MAXLENGTH/>

The first idea that came to mind would be something of the sort:
	<input type="text" name=<xsl:apply-templates select="@name"/>
maxlength=<xsl:templates select="@maxLength"/> >

Obviously this is incorrect. I assume this is due to the fact that the
output must be well-formed html. Is there any way to work around this?
