When xsl:value-of is processed the current context node is "rundate",
which is an element. The value of an element is the value of all the
text nodes that are descendants of the element. So that's why you get

What you want is the text of the current element or just "rundate" and
you want to ignore the text of "rate".

So change your xsl:value-of from <xsl:value-of select="."/> to
<xsl:value-of select="text()"/>
