Re: how to display html data, coming in a node

display html in a node
                <xsl:variable name="test"><xsl:value-of
select="//file-content" /></xsl:variable>
                <xsl:value-of select="$test" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>

You don't need to use the first variable, the above is equivalent to

                <xsl:value-of select="//file-content" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>

But using  disable-output-escaping= at all is usually a sign that
something is wrong. In this case what is wrong is teh use of CDATA
sections in the input. If you have control over that it would probably
be better 

to have
 <file-content> <b>...</b>..</filecontent>

 <file-content><![CDATA[ <b>...</b>..]]></filecontent>

Then you could use

                <xsl:copy-of select="//file-content[1]"/>

and avoid all the problems with  disable-output-escaping, and have a
better guarantee of your result being well formed.
