I find that when rendering an entire HTML page from XML source that matching
the root is the easiest and less prone to getting lost within the XML :)

<xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:for-each select="slideshow/slide">
        <td><xsl:value-of select="data1"/></td>
        <td><xsl:value-of select="data2"/></td>

But either should work fine.
