Hi Morais,

Your XML is a classic example of mixed content (text and elements
combined). You are usually better off using a *push* method with mixed
content because it means that the content is dealt with as it comes -
the processor takes the burden of working out what to do with what.

So rather than using xsl:for-each, do:

  <xsl:apply-templates select="paratext" />

And then have templates to handle any special elements within the
paratext content.  For example, for the extlink element, have:

<xsl:template match="extlink">
   <A href="{@fileref}"><xsl:apply-templates /></A>

I hope that helps,
