it should work in your example too, because there is a text node as
child of the <Link>, so the test is passed.
Only one comment:
The above passes the test because of spaces and line breaks between <p>
and <Link> or between <Link> and </Link>. To avoid this you can test on
nodes, which don't consist of only whitespaces characters. Use
normalize-space() for this
<xsl:when test="descendant::node()[normalize-space()][not(self::Link or
=> If a descendant node exists, that consists not only of whitespace
characters, that is not <Link> or <Media>, wrap it in <p>.

Excellent Joerg! The only place this would not work is
if I have a paragraph element with only a Link element
in it, such as:
<p><Link href="blah.html">This is a link</Link></p>
I need those to pass through the test and be wrapped
in a p tag. Otherwise, it catches everything else I
Thank you! That gives me great direction...

If there is any descendant node (including elements,
text), which is not element Link or element Media,
create <p> in output
