Real beginner question. I have this XML file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<results>
<result id="1">
<attribute name="name"><![CDATA[The Name]]></attribute>
<attribute name="translation"><![CDATA[The Translation]]></attribute>
</result>
</results>

It's not my XML and I can't do anything about the structure

The following XSL outputs "The Name"

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:template match="/">
      <xsl:for-each select="/results/result">
              <xsl:value-of select="attribute" />
      </xsl:for-each>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Instead, I want to output the value of the 2nd item named attribute - ie my output should be "The Translation"

           <xsl:value-of select="attribute[@name = 'translation']" />
if you need the selection to be based on the value of the attribute

or
           <xsl:value-of select="attribute[2]" />
if you simply need the second
