Re: Returning HTML tags from a function not working

returning html tags in xml
Changing a newline to a br is an explict example in the XS:T2 spec.

see
http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20/#regex-examples
you want to apply this to text nodes, so

<xsl:template match="text()">
<xsl:analyze-string select="." regex="\n">
  <xsl:matching-substring>
    <br/>
  </xsl:matching-substring>
  <xsl:non-matching-substring>
    <xsl:value-of select="."/>
  </xsl:non-matching-substring>
</xsl:analyze-string>
</xsl:template>


together with an identity template to copy the rest of the document.

XSLT has no access to the tags in your source document (and can not
directly generate tags in the result). The tags in your source are used
by an XMl parser to produce a node tree that XSLT uses as input, but the
parser does not report what tags were used.

But the doc element node does have a b element child, and two text node
children, and that's all XSLT needs to know.
