xml uncertainty
could do that lots of different ways

how about

<xsl:template match="overview[info]">
<info><xsl:apply-templates select="info"/></info>

do whatever you want with info in an info template

your previous template should probably have been something like

<info><xsl:value-of select="."/><xsl:text> </xsl:text><xsl:vaue-of
and then
<xsl:template match="overview/info"/>
to get other infos out of the picture

I am however 99% certain that this is not the way you should do it ,
and instead use the other method (there is always a possiblity I don't
know some requirement you have that makes this reasonable) given this
slight hint of uncertainty I have used a rather bad xpath to get what
should have been a lot easier to get, see former example.
