Subject: [xsl] Comparison Table for XML files|

Each data file contains various nodes with "names" and "values". Some nodes exist on one file and not in others. No one file is guaranteed to have all possible node "names".
The left column will be the "name" - all names from the input files need to be listed in this column. Each file will have a corresponding labeled column in the table, and the value of each "name" node will be placed in the correct spot in the grid. If a particular file does not have a "name" node for some name, a filler will be inserted ("N/A" or something) instead of a value. This may not show up, but for example: (f1) (f2) (f3) A NA 2 3 B 1 NA NA C 1 2 NA
A real-world example of such a table is a product feature comparison chart for various products.
