Create Elements in the Output tree of an XSL Transformation

Consider the following XML fragment:
  <description>DevX Website</description>

Let's say that you want to transform this XML in the following simple HTML code:
<a href="http://www.devx.com">DevX Website</a>

The most common way is to use the <xsl:element>, <xsl:attribute>, and <xsl:value-of> elements as in the following template:
<xsl:template match="link">
  <xsl:element name="a">
    <xsl:attribute name="href">
      <xsl:value-of select="url" />
    <xsl:value-of select="description" />

Consider using the templates that make use of the curly braces notation instead to save lots of typing as in the following:
<xsl:template match="link">
  <a href="{url}">
    <xsl:value-of select="description" />
