I've been looking at this for too long and can no longer think clearly. Take this example:

    <para>The notation for water is

I'm trying to transform to XHTML. The desired output for the above would be:

<p>The notation for water is <span class="chem">H<sub>2</sub>0</span></p>

The problem I have is that if I use value-of "." I can get the value of node, but no further templates are applied. If I use apply-templates "*" I get the sub-templates but no value. 

For example:

<xsl:template match="chem">
    <span class="chem"><xsl:apply-template select="*" /></span>

<xsl:template match="sub">
    <sub><xsl:value-of select="." /></sub>

This gets the <sub> but loses the value of the <chem>.

As I say, I've lost all clarity of mind on this, so I'm expecting it to be obvious! Any and all suggestions most welcome.

Thanks for your time.
