David,

I've changed the root node in the master template to match on unitdate
and unittitle, so that I could match on unitdate/text() and
unittitle/text() in my mode templates, but it's stripping the
element's and just outputting text. I tried matching on
unitdate/text() and unittitle/text() (in the master template) but that
didn't work either, presumable because I was selecting a node of text,
so no node selection would work.

Could you make a suggestion to change my master template match and
mode template match?

Thanks,
Nathan
