XSLT operates on nodes -- not on tags. It is not possible to create only a
"starting tag" or only an "ending tag". Anyone, who worries "where the </tr>
will be written" is not thinking in terms of XSLT.

If it were necessary to write dummy "td" elements in some rows, this, of
course, can be done. However, we must see a compelling case to do so.
