Not knowing what your original XHTML looks like, I can only provide a general XSLT. In the following, I assume each row in a table either contains a table or a td which is the name (your tags may vary). This allows xsl:apply-templates to recursively call the table template.

<xsl:template match="table"> <node> <xsl:for-each select="tr"> <xsl:apply-templates /> </xsl:for-each> </node> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="td"> <name><xsl:value-of select="." /></name> </xsl:template>

Here's a more complete example.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
