Converting logical <em>s to physical <i>s (nesting pro

How can I convert <em>s to <i>s, such that "nested" <em>s are either italic or not italic as appropriate? That is, I want

<em>This is <em>emphasised</em>!</em>

to be converted into

<i>This is </i>emphasised<i>!</i>

The following almost works:

  <xsl:template match="em">
    <xsl:when test="count(ancestor::em) mod 2 = 0">

failing only because the contents of the "otherwise" clause aren't nested properly.

By the way, what's the best was to "pass through" unknown tags? I currently use

  <xsl:template match="*">
  <xsl:element name="{name(.)}">
  <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
