I am surprised these two template element additions did not make it >into the last draft... The tags <xsl:cdata> and <xsl:entity-ref> are not _vital_ - as long as the output is going to be read by an XML processor. It boils down to the question of "Should an XSL stylesheet be able to emit all possible XML _textual representations_ or just all possible _documents_". The reason that _I_ would like to have them is that they can be argued to be within the current intent while allowing a clean way to emit non-XML output for those who need it (TeX, Rtf, ...). I'd rather that this need was addressed directly, but I find such tags as a reasonable compromise for the sake of the purity of the language. All this doesn't have anything to do with the example you've given - the output was valid XML. Have fun, Oren Ben-Kiki XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
