Have you seen my other reply regarding the use of the
JXTemplateGenerator to handle that?

Anyway, if you want to do it via Woody, I would use an output widget in
combination with some wi:styling information that triggers a custom
template in the XSLT that generates the HTML anchor. I explained how
this can be done in the "deleting repeater-rows" thread yesterday. (yes,
we need to include a sample of this)
