In what way is it dynamic? Isn't the authors tag sufficient?

Do you mean you want to know how to pass the value of $entries into the XSL?

If so take a look at our sitemaps, there are lots of examples. Search 
for "<map:paramter"

You could also pass it in using a configuraiton file. You can also see 
examples of this in our skins, search for "$config".
