that's correct: If it doesn't work you are doing something else wrong.

> <xsl:value-of select="<br/>" />
that isn't XML (can't have < in an attribute value, so the xsl system
will not even have seen it, having been rejected by the parser)

> <xsl:value-of select="'<br/>'" />

> <xsl:value-of select="'&lt;br/&gt;'" />
That is equivalent to

> <xsl:value-of select="&lt;br/&gt;" />
That is legal XML but is an XSLT syntax error as You can't start an
XPath expression with <
