Newbie: Embedding styles in XML blocks
I'm relatively new to XSL, trying to ween myself of customer HTML templating solutions. There's a fairly simple issue i've run into a couple of times, which is embedding simple style controls in a paragraph of XML data, such as: <para>This is an <i>important</i> paragraph</para> These are the ways i've tried to render it <xsl:template match="para"> <p><xsl:value-of select="."/></p> </xsl:template> ..which strips out the <i>. <xsl:template match="para"> <p><xsl:value-of select="*"/></p> </xsl:template> ..which displays only the contents of <i> <xsl:template match="para"> <p><xsl:value-of select="*"/></p> </xsl:template> ..which displays everything inclusing the enclosing <para> I know, i know, i now have HTML in my XML, so of course i'm open to a solution that does text styling in the proper XSL fashion (which i don't know right). I just don't want to resort to using <![CDATA[ ]]> for all my text chunks that have styling embedded thanks, arne XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
