I have been trying to convert specific child elements into attributes of the
parent node.  I looked through archive, there was a topic of converting all
children to attributes of the root.  I followed the same thing and tried to
convert a specific child element, but i am getting following error.  
elmToAtt.xsl; Line 18; Column -1; name() has an illegal attribute: {1}
I would like to copy the xml document and convert only specific elements
into attributes.
I am not able to make out why this error is, but to no avail.  Hoping that
anybody in the list would help to resolve . 

(I had posted this on XSLTalk group, but i wasnt able to c the message, so
re-posting this.)


Here is my styleSheet, elmToAtt.xsl:
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";
   <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>
   <xsl:template match="*">
         <xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/>
         <xsl:apply-templates />
   <xsl:template match="@*">

   <xsl:template match="id">
      <xsl:attribute name="name()">
         <xsl:value-of select="text()"/>

   <xsl:template match="value"><xsl:value-of

Here is XML document:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <field> <id>customerId</id> <value>cust1</value> </field>
      <field> <id>customerName</id> <value>Customer 1</value></field>
            <field> <id>street</id> <value>98th Street </value></field>
            <field> <id>city</id> <value>Chicago</value></field>
            <field> <id>street</id> <value>128th Street</value></field>
            <field> <id>city</id> <value>Chicago</value></field>
