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="*|/">

And for text (and attributes) you have something like this as "built-inb":
<xsl:template match="text()|@*">
        <xsl:value-of select="."/>

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()||@*">

Sometimes this is called the "identity copy" or "identity template". I hope 
i'm correct here, just cited from memory :)
