|  <xsl:output method="html" disable-output-escaping="yes"
| media-type="text/html" indent="no"/>

disable-output-escaping doesn't go here.

| <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes"

Whenever it appears that disable-output-escaping="yes" is
not working, 99% of the time it is because you are:

  (1) Using your own Java program to produce the results
      of the XSLT transformation, and

  (2) Using the wrong API to effect the transformation.

      The Oracle processor has two similar API's:

      (a) DocumentFragment processXSL(xsl,xml)
      (b) void processXSL(xsl,xml,PrintWriter)

      If you use (a), you get an in-memory tree
      of XML. If you then use the DOM's print() method
      to serialize it, then that's what you get. A DOM
      serialization. It's not smart to all the XSLT
      output serialization options.

      If you use (b), then the XSLT engine gets the
      chance to perform all of the appropriate XSLT
      output "magic", including disable-output-escaping.

So, make sure you're using (b).
