Attributes can make things a lot easier. For example, our previous XMl document could be changed so that it uses attributes quite easily:

 <people>     <person name="Sam Huggill"email="sam@vbsquare.com"/>     <person name="Sam Huggill"email="sam@vbsquare.com"/>> </people> 

We can read attributes by using the <xsl:value-of> tag and prefixing the attribute name with an @ sign:

 <xsl:value-ofselect="people/person/@name"> <xsl:value-ofselect="people/person/@email"> 

Our loop now looks like this:

 <xsl:for-eachselect="people/person">     <xsl:value-of select="@name"/>     <xsl:value-of select="@email"/> </xsl:for-each>
