You probably want <xsl:apply-templates/> there not <xsl:value-of
otherwise any elements inside your <i> element won't get transformed.

Note XSLT does not have access to the tags in the document only element
nodes, which are ot the same thing (there's around twice as many tags as
elements, for a start)

  <xsl:template match="*">
    <xsl:copy-of select="." />

similarly that would make any part of teh document below an unknown
element be copied verbatim without any transform, you probably want

  <xsl:template match="*">
  <xsl:copy-of select="@*/>

see that parallel "identity transfom" thread on this list over the last
couple of days.
