        <b><xsl:value-of select="text()"/></b>

In XSLT1  value-of produces the string value of the first node in
document order and discards all later nodes.
so text() selects all text nodes but value-of only uses the first.

You coudl use copy-of instead then you would get all text nodes, but
you'd get them all here (before you output any elements)

        <b><xsl:value-of select="embedded"/></b>

ditto. This selects all embedded elemenst but only uses the first.
You could use copy-of but then you would get all embedded elements
grouped together. If that's teh intention then fine but if not, then
it's far more natural for the template matching pars to just use
apply-templates and then have templates matching text() and embedded()
which will then be invoked in document order.
