Re:  Searching text with elements help needed

Without having looked at your solution, how about this (in addition to the
usual identity templates):

<xsl:variable name="prefix" select="'For more information see '"/>

<xsl:template match="Para[CrossReference]">
    <xsl:for-each select="node()">
        <xsl:when test="self::CrossReference and
preceding-sibling::node()[1][self::text() and matches(., concat($prefix,
          <xsl:comment select="'drop CrossReference'"/>
        <xsl:when test="self::text() and matches(., concat($prefix, '$'))">
          <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(., $prefix)"/>
          <xsl:comment select="concat('drop ', $prefix)"/>
          <xsl:apply-templates select="."/>
