My problem is related to rendering html content like
"content<b>bold</b>...contents" as it in xml into the output html. I
am using <apply-templates> to select content but later use <value-of>
to trim it. Suspect <value-of> removing the html tags (not sure), but
are there any other way to get proper results?
Basically my xml looks something like

			<Paragraph>In this session we <sub>this</sub><b>Bold</b> take a
closer look at what is meant by strategy. The classical approach to
strategic management  ... big para content

I am trying to output 1st para of certain elements & limit the para
content to certain char limit. so, in my xsl 

		<xsl:for-each select="//Introduction | 
//Session/Section/SubSection | //References | //Acknowledgements">
			<xsl:variable name="titleContent">				
				<xsl:value-of select="name()"/>
			<xsl:variable name="paraContent">
				<xsl:if test=".//Paragraph[1] and (name() = 'SubSection' or
name() = 'Introduction')">
					<xsl:apply-templates select=".//Paragraph[1]"/>
			<p class="paradefault">
				<xsl:call-template name="trimPara">

					<xsl:with-param name="stringInput" 


and then ...

	<xsl:template name="trimPara">
		<!-- pass the string to be cropped with required string length -->
		<xsl:param name="stringLenRequired"/>
		<xsl:param name="stringInput"/>



stringLenRequired) +20),' ' ),' ')"/> <!-- to make it a full word -->
		<xsl:if test="string-length($stringInput) > 


This results in an html output having no <b>, <sup> or any other html
tags - while the content within them gets thro. I dont know where
those html tags gets striped. Pls let me know how can this be fixed.

Thanks in adv.
