I thought of a kludgey way to do it with the Dec. 16 WD.
You can create a stylesheet that generates a 2nd stylesheet,
such that the 2nd stylesheet transforms your
DynamicTable document into the desired HTML table.

You would then invoke XT twice as follows:
  xt.exe table.xml first.xsl second.xsl
  xt.exe table.xml second.xsl table.htm

The following XSL stylesheet converts your DynamicTable
document into a stylesheet that transforms your 
XML doc into the desired HTML table:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl" 
    <xsl:template match="/DynamicTable">
        <qxsl:stylesheet result-ns="qxsl">
            <qxsl:template match="/DynamicTable">
                        <TITLE>Dynamic Table</TITLE>
                        <TABLE BORDER="1" WIDTH="50%">
                            <xsl:for-each select="Columns/Column">
                              <TH><xsl:value-of select="@name"/></TH>
                          <qxsl:for-each select="Rows/Row">
                              <xsl:for-each select="Columns/Column">
                                  <xsl:attribute name="select">
                                    Column[@name="<xsl:value-of select="@name"/>"]
                                    <qxsl:value-of select="."/>

Hope this helps.
