For my XSL nested tag question some of you responded with a solution 
of using text(), but that solution is not working. When I tried with 
the solution, the text under "Target" tag is printing at the end 
of text under "Main" ie,

<h1>This is a first test message it is important<h1>
<h2> and <h2>

But I need the output to be 
<h1>This is a first test message <h2> and </h2> it is important</h1>

Thanks for all the help

<xsl:template match="Main/text()">
  <h1><xsl:value-of select="."/></h1>

<xsl:template match="Target">
  <h2><xsl:value-of select="."/></h2>

But before you do that, try to choose a better design for your XML.
Using mixed content (text and elements as siblings of each other)
probably isn't the best approach here.
