Display link text as a hyperlink

 Display link text as a hyperlink
I have an xml file that contains this character sequence: 'www.gamefaqs.com' .

Primary Problem:
After I convert the 'www' text to hyperlink format, the xsl displays it as plain text, but I would like to display it has a hyperlink.   

Secondary:
I am aware that the url may also contain subfolders like: www.gamefaqs.com/console/n64   OR different a suffix like www.gamefaqs.ca., but right now I'll focus on .com, but feel free to make suggestions :) .
