My apologies up front -- I know this issue has been discussed
but my searches in the XSL archives haven't succeeded and, as
someone else recently posted, I swallowed a dumb pill today.

I'm struggling to extract only the text out of a paragraph
which allows mixed content. There may be several levels of
descendant elements. With a first para such as:

<para>This is the beginning of <field>Field A</field> which you
can use to start the process. </para>

All I get in the output is:

This is the beginning of Field A

The template I'm using so far does find the first text children
and the text inside the first element node, but it stops there.
I'm obviously missing something fundamental and am hoping that
someone can point out my errors.

The template I'm using now is:

<xsl:template match="para[1]">
<xsl:for-each select="descendant-or-self::*>
 <xsl:value-of select="text()"/>

I'm using LotusXSL (0.18.2) as my XSL processor.
