I am exporting an Access 2003 database as XML. Some of the fields should
contain HTML, but the XML export from Access seems to escape the angle
brackets. So three questions:

1. Has anyone successfully got HTML into and out of an Access 2003 database?

2. Alternatively, I write a recursive template using lots of substring-xxx
and xsl:element. Not too difficult, but if anyone knows of a suitable
template available to use, that would save some time.

3. Or have I missed something?

Assuming your stylesheet wants to output HTML then disable-output-escaping helps, as long as the processor supports it:
<xsl:value-of select="foo" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>


Assuming the escaped markup is well-formed XML (which unfortunately HTML often is not) then you can try to parse it with an extension function like saxon:parse
http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/extensions/functions/parse.html


Today's thread "fault tolerant saxon:parse" also suggests you can parse HTML tag soup by pluggin in the TagSoup parser.
