I think he stated that he wanted to only create the <thead> if there
were any tr[th], otherwise no <thead>.
In which case you'd need to test something like:

   <xsl:when test="tr[th]">
	  <xsl:apply-templates select="tr[th]"/>
	  <xsl:apply-templates select="tr[not(th)]"/>
	<xsl:apply-templates select="tr"/>

P.S. I've been a member of this list for quite a while now.  What a
wealth of solutions you've all provided during that time.  I usually
don't reply much anymore since the list regulars/gurus are so fast they
usually have a response posted before I even get started typing. :-)
