the basic model in xslt is that xpath selects nodes from the source tree
and xslt templates generate new nodes in the output, you want to doi the
former so you want to use xpath (ie select attributes) rather than xslt

Xpath2 is more expressive (or at least you can express things more
esaily with less keystrokes) and in particular as you can define
functions within xslt you can make things more re-usable.

it's not a full rec yet but a lot of people are using it already.

Although I don't actually see anything in your problem description that
suggests to me that you could bot do this in xpath 1.
