That is the xsl default behaviour. You need templates to do anything other with xml elements than just digging deeper. This is somewhat like a built-in default template. For example you may think of this template as beeing built-in (until you write your own): <xsl:template match="*|/"> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:template> And for text (and attributes) you have something like this as "built-inb": <xsl:template match="text()|@*"> <xsl:value-of select="."/> </xsl:template> Additionaly, sometimes, if you _don't_ want that default behaviour on standard text, you need a template for this. So to avoid getting arbitrary text, you could add a template like this: <xsl:template match="text()"/> You may add this template to just copy the elements: <xsl:template match="node()||@*"> <xsl:copy> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template> Sometimes this is called the "identity copy" or "identity template". I hope i'm correct here, just cited from memory :)
