So there is no way to generate a verbatim output of the contents of the "doc" tag. Does this mean
that I'll have to create templates for all <b> and all other HTML tags which copies the text to
the output and also applys templates?

Seems to me, there must be some way to say that I need to copy everything in an element as it is
to the output (including the tags).
