Well I have corrected the problem by adding an
<xsl:if> to check if any children exist before
inserting a <td>. (If children exists then a column
will exist. So a <td> with or without data is
necessary. Otherwise no <td> will be created.

Here's the corrected template (I think it could be
cleaner or more elegant. But I'll tinker with it when
I learn more on XSL.)

<xsl:template match="Table1/Item" mode="celldata">
   <xsl:variable name="thisitem" select="."/>
       <xsl:for-each select="$Table1Struct/Item/*">
       <xsl:variable name="ItemName"
test="count($thisitem/..//*[name(.)=$ItemName]) &gt;

I am still working on the parameter passing hurdle.
Hoping for some help from you guys.
