It's quite tricky to handle markup properly when the document author has gone to such extreme lengths to conceal the markup (by escaping it). It's particularly confusing that in the <title> element, escaping has been used properly (to escape a real ampersand character), while in <content> it has been used improperly (to escape < and > characters that are really markup, not text). Because the markup has been disguised as text, you need to put the contents of the <content> element through a second stage of XML parsing to turn it into a tree structure. Saxon has an extension saxon:parse() specifically for this purpose.
