[xsl] identity transform filtering nodes

      I have a html file with some embedded xml and I would like to get the
xml only if possible by filtering all the html tags using the identity

I have checked the archive and the solution I got is probably right but Iam
not sure how to make it suit me.

The solution given was

  <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
     <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
     <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>

and override the templates for the elements you don't want in your result
tree here to produce nothing:

  <xsl:template match="table">

  <xsl:template match="p">


The above gives me an "Invalid instantiation of 'Attribute' in 'Element'
context." error. But if I replace the xsl:copy-of with xsl:value-of I get
the nodes etc as plain text in my result i.e no "<" or ">".

Kindly let me know how this can be done.
