Wow! This works:
Problem solved (and lesson learned).
Can you think of a sensible use of "disable-output-escaping"? Wow, thinking
about all the uses I've made of it and now thinking that they all
should/could become copy-of(s). Hmmmm... thanks for the re-alignment David.

The reason I did not include the last template is because I was testing
result of the template match "review" by writing out my variable like
<xsl:value-of select="$ui_review" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
Using value-of always produces the _string_value_ and as its a string it
never produces any markup in the result, XSLT coerces element nodes to a
string by forgetting the elements and just taking the character data.
You want copy-of not value-of
secondly it's always a bad idea to use disable-output-escaping. Unless
you are in very special circumstances (such as not producing XML at all)
Then it's almost always a sign of an error in the design somewhere.
