$unparsed is going to be item()* instead of string if it's formed like
that, and I don't think saxon:parse will work on item()* as input, it
wants a single string.

If text:p's contents are purely escaped markup text, normalize-space(.)
ought to work; if it's mixed content, you probably have to do the
string-join dance with saxon:serialize to get a single string to feed
saxon:parse, or figure out some way to return only the escaped text if
that's all you're interested in.

Might actually be a use case for //text()[normalize-space()]  :)
