The resultant xhtml file:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML Basic 1.1//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/xhtml-basic11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en"
lang="en"><head><meta content="xhtml document created by xml
transformation" name="notice" /><title>Test output web
page</title></head><body>
	<p>Giada De Laurentiis</p>
	<p>J K. Rowling</p>
	<p>James McGovernPer BothnerKurt CagleJames LinnVaidyanathan Nagarajan</p>
	<p>Erik T. Ray</p>
</body></html>

According to the specification the above transformation can be
achieved using either element 'apply-templates' or element 'value-of'.

Why is it that when the element 'value-of' in the stylesheet above is
substituted for the element 'apply-templates', the result is a
truncation of the third line in the xhtml file, i.e. to:

...
<p>James McGovern</p>
...

Also, it it possible to add whitespace  and punctuation to the xhtml output, eg.

...
<p>James McGovern, Per Bothner, Kurt Cagle, James Linn, Vaidyanathan
Nagarajan</p>
...
