It's easy to forget that XSLT is XML (and not a scripted substition language
like Active Server Pages), and any XSLT script needs to obey the rules of
well-formed XML.

You can either use the {} syntax for evaluating expressions in attributes:

	<select name="{.}" size="1">

Or you can use the xsl:attribute element:

		<xsl:attribute name="value">
			<xsl:value-of select="." />
		Option text goes here.

If you really do want a "<" in an attribute (or as part of an expression),
then it needs to be escaped (&lt;).
