If your table attribute was of type ID and your tables attribute was of
type IDREFS (or even if it wasn't) you could go

Tables <xsl:for-each select="id(@tables)">
 <a href="data{@table}.html"><xsl:value-of select="@table"/></a>

But presumably this is not the case as your example showed table ids
with numeric values, these can not be valid ID or IDREF attributes
as XML IDs must begin with a letter.

Since you are not using ids you will need to split up the space
separated attribute "by hand" some systems have extension functions to
do this (eg saxon:tokenize) otherwise you'll need a recursive template
(the faq has some examples of this kind of tokenisation I believe)
