An even quicker way to effect the same result would be

<xsl:copy-of select="text()"/>

copy-of performs a deep copy of *all* nodes in the supplied node-set (as
opposed to value-of which gets the string value of just the first node in
the supplied node-set). This example will produce the same result,  because
copying a text node is the same as getting the string value of that text
node (whereas that's not the case with, say, elements).
