   I am using XSLT to change XML in one DTD to XML in a slightly modified
   DTD.  In the original DTD, the attribute R can appear on virtually any
   element; I would prefer that the attribute be called REND.  Is there a way
   to change this globally anywhere it appears (<xsl:template match="@R">, I
   presume), or does it have to be adressed on an element by element level?

<xsl:template match="@R">
<xsl:attribute name="REND">
  <xsl:value-of select="."/>

<xsl:template match="@*">
<xsl:copy-of select="."/>

will copy all attributes, except for renaming R to REND
but as attribute nodes are not on the default selection for
apply-templates you'll need to make sure that every template that is
making an element node calls
<xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/>
