Those attributes are artifacts of another world. They are there to support procedural processes that don't have XSLT's virtues, so here are entirely superfluous. They could even be wrong (to learn whether that is the case you could write a routine to validate them in XSLT). From the point of view of XSLT they're just a red herring.

Anyway, what Jeni says. You don't need them. Just map from your rows and columns to your target's rows and columns. If your tables are all as simple as you've shown.
