[xsl] Applying templates to a mixed content node

Subject: [xsl] Applying templates to a mixed content node

I have the following source XML (which is formed somewhat awkwardly):

<p>Some text for the p tag.

Note that <p> contains both text and other children elements.
In processing, I would like to write the p/text() node to an FO block, and
then continue to process the <tabular> node with templates.  These xpath
expressions seem evaluate correctly, but the processor never processes the
<tabular> node:

<xsl:template match="p">
	<xsl:if test="./tabular">
		<fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="para">
			<xsl:value-of select="./text()" />
		<xsl:apply-templates select="tabular"/>
	<fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="para">
		<xsl:apply-templates />

Any suggestions on how to make the processor recognize that <p> contains a
<tabular> before processing the node?

Thanks so much,
