[xsl] XSL Newbie: How2 write transforms for variable XML

I'm sure there is some way to create XSL that can work for limited variability in XML content.

Simple example, consider a report that yields columnar data in which the columns in the report will vary - which columns and their order:



I want to know how I can develop XSL to handle the data without hard-coding selects for specific names (attrA, attrB, attrC, attrD). Additionally, I want to be able to define rules for each column. Like justification, color, bold, etc. - would this be some kind of meta-data or processing instructions?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Forgive me if this is well understood, I could not find anything in the archive 'cause I was probably not searching for the right keywords.
