So the idea is that you have an HTML table where the first <td/>  
contains a name, and all following <td/>s contain numbers that are  
associated with the name?

What about:
for $row in $somewhere/table/tr
let $name := $row/td[1]/string()
let $numbers := $row/td[position() > 1]/string()
return <user><name>{$name}</user><numbers>{ string-join($numbers,  
',') }</numbers></user>

I don't quite understand the thing with just a single column, to  
whose name is it associated then?
