XML structure for easy XSLT
I'm in the process of building some XML that will subsequently be transformed by XLST into HTML in the form of tables.

For example, I should be structuring the XML such that it flows into a table row by row using the for-each construct right?

Yes, the more the structure of the data is explicit in the XML tagging, the easier it will be to process it in XSLT. For example it's much easier to process
