RE:  How to Get Nested Nodes
Small comment...

    <xsl:template match="*">
         <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>
    </xsl:template>

This template is unnecessary as written, the built-in templates cover this exact behavior. The only benefit I'd see to it would be that you'd have a placeholder in case you want to add more functionality to the handling of each element later, but in that case I would just wait and add a new template at that point.
