The symptoms you describe would not happen if theer were any tags, as
then you would get a b eleemnt in the XSLt input, and value-of would not
generate any markup from an element node.

You presumably have teh HTML escaped so that it is explictly _not_ a
tag, either using &lt; or (equivalently) a CDATA section, something like

<title>&lt;b> Some Text Here&lt;/b></title>

  select="translate(atom:title,'&lt;/b&gt;','     ')" />

translate translates individual characters so, as you observed, that
translates each of < / b and > to a space.

The FAQ at has examples of replace templates that you
can use for replacing one string by another.
