but what point are you trying to make here?
Your template just puts out the string value of an unspecified "d"
element into an textarea element.
Why would anyone use a recursive template for that?
What would you recurse on? What has this to do with text replace

Also, the XSL list guidelines clearly ask you not to CC other lists
