  I know, I've been cheating with:
  <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&lt;ol&gt;</xsl:text>

Don't do that. It's immoral (and doesn't always work). If you do go that
route (and you stick to the subset of xslt processors that support d-o-e)
then you will be forever fighting against XSLT's natural way of doing
things. If you need to handle tags directly like that then you are much
better to use a tool that handles tags directly such as perl rather than
use XSLT which by design abstracts the XML document away from teh
explict tagging.

> My XSLT so far is:

and as you see it's far more complicated to do it that way than go with
the flow and do it the xslt way as I posted.
