Given this XML:

  <title>&lt;a href="foo.html"&gt;Today&lt;/a&gt;</title>
  <title>Hammersmith &amp; City</title>

and the need to process the <title> element to strip out the markup
(or some other requirement) - how would you incorporate tagsoup?

Currently I'm calling saxon:parse on the contents of the title
element, wrapped in a root node (as there's no guarantee of a single
root element):

<xsl:variable name="parsed-content"
select="saxon:parse(concat('&lt;root&gt;', saxon:parse(title),
<xsl:value-of select="$parsed-content"/>

Do I parse the entire XML using tagsoup?
