Subject: Re: [xsl] Problem with embeded XHTML in an XML file and transformation to XSL:FO|

I have a problem with the following, and breaking my head over it the last couple of days.
I have the content element as seen below in a xml document which has to be transformed to a PDF. That is no problem with the Apache FOP and I have almost everything working except the view parts that use the XHTML.
How do I create a template that can transfer the XHTML code to XSL:FO code on the fly (preserving layout etc). I tried importing the xhtml2fo.xsl sheet into the general style sheet and then call apply-templates inside the content element, but that doesn't work, I guess because the tags are not correct (as in <).
The resulting PDF document shows the HTML perfect (with <HTML> etc.).
I was trying to apply-templates to the code and then put it in a variable on which the xhtml2fo.xsl template can be applied, but FOP crashed on that try.
Does anybody have any suggestion?
Thanks a million in advance, Regards,
A small snip of the embedded code is (I replaced the text):
<Content Version="1.0" type="XHTML"><html><head></head><body><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-top: 6pt; text-align: justify; text-indent: 21.25pt; font-family: times new roman;"><font size="3"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">
Because the markup is escaped you will need to parse it twice. You have a <Content> element containing a string:
In order for a template to be applied to <html> you need to parse it once to get angle brackets:
