<xsl:template match="item">
    title:<xsl:value-of select="current()"/>

current() (you could have used . and got the same thing) selects the
current node, and value-of generates the string value of the node, which
is all the text in any descendant.

You only want the first text node child, which is text()[1] but that
would give you 
	   title 1

with lots of white space which you can kill off with the normalize-space
function, so...

<xsl:template match="item">
    title:<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(text()[1])"/>


welcome to the club (oh and it's xsl not xls:-)
which I cannot solve with the W3C tutorial ...
I don't think the W3C have any tutorial material (they do of course have
the XSLT specification itself,  If you mean w3schools or whatever it's
called that has no connection with w3c as far as I know)
