XSL need help translating XML to html hyperlink

Sorry if this sounds stupid, but im new to XML, and i just cant get my head around this problem.

imagine the following XML
<student name=chris>
i need to use XSL to translate that to a html hyperlink in the form of
<a hreh="">chris</a>
at first i tried

<a href=" 
<xsl:value-of select="student/link"/>
<xsl:value-of select="student/@name"/>
but that generates a nasty error, obviously because i have embedded tags.

how am i meant to solve this problem ????

i have tried storeing "" in a xsl variable, but then all i get is a hyperlink to a variable name.

google is clueless, does anyone here have any idea's ??
