limiting value-of...nested lists

I have some xml that represents a nested index, similar to html's
<ul><li><ul><li>etc. the nesting go go quite deep with my current data (5
levels). My problem is in rendering this as simple nested lists in html are
I understand I cannot transform source elememnts to result elements (aka
search and replace style, every <foo> to <ul>), and i have problem using
value-of in for-each and template-match rules.
Using <xsl:value-of select="foo"/ returns only the *first*
occurrence of <foo> in each <xsl:for-each> loop. (This is explained in the
Microsoft documentation on <xsl:value-of> at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/xml/reference/xsl/xsl_value-of.asp). But using
<xsl:value-of select="."/> I get all descendent elements of the source node
I want, concatenated. Only the last level is displayed as I want.
Can I limit value-of by saying something like "get only this node, and
forget its descendents"?
Or is there an easier way?
