| So far so good... But when I use my stylesheet now, the result is that the

If you want to process all children of <Content>
in document order (engaging the appropriate
template for each element you encounter) you can do:

<xsl:template match="Content">
   | With no "select" attribute, defaults to process children
   | of the current node 

Or to limit it to only specific children, but still
process them as they "lie" in document order, you
can do:

<xsl:template match="Content">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="Header1|Header2|Text"/>

hope this helps.
