XSLT files are parsed first as XML and XML elements have to be correctly

<xsl:for-each select="*">
<xsl:value-of select="@desc" /> : </td><td>

looks to the XML parser like


so it's telling you that you have tried to close a ccc (td) element when 
an aaa (xsl:for-each) is open.

You are cearly thinking about trying to write out the xml tag markup
which is just the wrong way to think about things in XSLT.

You are generating a node tree, it never makes sense to try to "write
and end tag".

the FAQ for this list (linked from the list page whose address is in
every message) has many examples of table generation.
