you'll need to give more information about the transformation rule that
you are trying to encode. there seems to be some information in the
elements, why does 
<in_01><p>a third list element</p></in_01>
become the first node of an li element, an
<in_02><p>list element as child of the third element</p></in_02>
become the second text node of teh same li, separated by a br.

If you could explain these rules in English, someone could write them
down in xslt.

XSLT deals with element nodes, never tags. The stylesheet has to be a
well formed XML docuement, so it's true that all tags need to be
properly balanced otherwise the XML parser will reject the stylesheet
before XSLT processor sees it.

preceding-sibling::*[1] will select the previous element node, but you
can never produce open or close tags in XSLT, you need to think in terms
of a tree of nodes.

Clearly XSLT can produce that output, You need to show what you tried,
and someone could show you what;s wrong.

I don't understand this comment, sorry. Do you mean that the input
structure is not in your control and so you can't change it?
