It would be helpful to see what the XSL code is that you used for this.

If you just used a value of, it would only get the first node.

There are 2 text nodes in the xml string you gave us, so chances are you 
would need to use a for-each or apply-templates or something.  I don't 
know if we will be able to tell you unless we can see what you are doing.
