as you probably gathered from the replies re CDATA marked sections, your
question was misleading as that isn't cdata. The term  "cdata" doesn't
appear in XML, but CDATA does, in two contexts: attribute values and
in CDATA marked sections. In both cases the data can't contain tags
that's essentially why it's called CDATA (as opposed to PCDATA
as it's not _P_arsed to find the start tags)

as others have said, text() will give you the text nodes, or if actually
you want the whole p, then <xsl:copy-of select="p"/> will copy the tree
into the result (unlike value-of which just gives the string value, thus
dropping the b element markup)
