I am doing an XML to CSV conversion successfully with the XSL below.
I want to know how to modify this XSL so that my CSV spreadsheet will have column headers Class, Last Name, First Name etc.

'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
      <xsl:output encoding="iso-8859-1" method="text" version="1.0"/>
      <xsl:template match="/">
            <xsl:apply-templates select="NewDataSet"/>
      </xsl:template>
      <xsl:template match="NewDataSet">
            <xsl:for-each select="Students">
                  <xsl:value-of select="Class"/>
                  <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
                  <xsl:value-of select="Last_x0020_Name"/>
                  <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
                  <xsl:value-of select="First_x0020_Name"/>
                  <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
                  <xsl:value-of select="Level"/>
                  <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
                  <xsl:value-of select="Previous_x0020_Score"/>
                  <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
                  <xsl:value-of select="MaxScore"/>
                  <xsl:text>&#013;</xsl:text>
            </xsl:for-each>
      </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Just before <xsl:for-each> put:
<xsl:text>Class,Last Name,first name,Level,Previous_Score,MaxScore&x013;</xsl:text>

or you can do it dynamically (also put before xsl:for-each):
<xsl:for-each select="Students::child">
<xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="local-name(.)"/></xsl:text>
<xsl:switch>
<xsl:when test="position()=last()">
<xsl:text>&#13;</xsl:text>
</xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise>
<xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:switch>
</xsl:for-each>

Adding column headers is just a matter of leaving a row for them. That is, before reading the data, generate the headers. Check this out:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
     <xsl:output encoding="iso-8859-1" method="text" version="1.0"/>
     <xsl:template match="/">
          <xsl:call-template name="CreateHeaders"/>
          <xsl:apply-templates select="NewDataSet"/>
     </xsl:template>
     <xsl:template name="CreateHeaders"/>
          <xsl:text>Class</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>Last Name</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>First Name</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>Level</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>Previous Score</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>MaxScore</xsl:text>
          <xsl:text>&#013;</xsl:text>
     </xsl:template>
     <xsl:template match="NewDataSet">
          <xsl:for-each select="Students">
               <xsl:value-of select="Class"/>
               <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
               <xsl:value-of select="Last_x0020_Name"/>
               <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
               <xsl:value-of select="First_x0020_Name"/>
               <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
               <xsl:value-of select="Level"/>
               <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
               <xsl:value-of select="Previous_x0020_Score"/>
               <xsl:text>,</xsl:text>
               <xsl:value-of select="MaxScore"/>
               <xsl:text>&#013;</xsl:text>
          </xsl:for-each>
     </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Hope that helps

Thanks for that ramazanyich and J_Mak. I actually meant for the top response to be the accepted answer but they were both good answers.

Cheers.
