<a href="http://www.foo.com" title="some foo link" tal:attributes="href somelink/href; title somelink/title" tal:content="somelink/text" >sample link</a>

<tr tal:repeat="ranking playerRankings" tal:attributes="class css-odd:repeat/ranking/odd"> … </tr>
The modifier would return "odd" if
repeat/ranking/odd is true,
If you use TALES alternatives in

XHTML attributes like
