RE:  Question Regarding the display of <a> tag from XML
Many thanks to Steve and David.  Spencer, I'm sorry I didn't post my XSL...
I totally spaced that.

The copy-of worked!  I didn't even know about copy-of, so it was great to
learn something knew.

Thanks!
Tim

use copy-of instead of value-of =)

If you think about it, <a>, while its still HTML, its also legitimate XML.
