You didn't have markup in the first place, so you don't get markup in the output either.

No, because "<queries>..." is not markup inside CDATA section, it's just text. If you want to output the text node in a CDATA section, use cdata-section-elements attribute in xsl:output with the value of the name of the element inside which the text appears, e.g. if the output element is "foo", the use

  <xsl:output cdata-section-elements="foo"/>

But again, note that 

  <foo><![CDATA[<queries><abc>123</abc></queries>]]></foo>

and 

  <foo>&lt;queries&gt;&lt;abc&gt;123&lt;/abc&gt;&lt;/queries&gt;</foo>

are equal.

Cheers,

Jarno
