It's a simple RSS writer... When to page is written out all of the formatting of the imported data from our wordpress blog ceases to exist... The <br />, &amp; , &mdash;, etc - all ignored...

http://www.changecompanies.net/news.php is the display page...

I believe I have it coded correctly... Anyone have any ideas?

Please show your input xml, the expected output and the current output. Your question is not clear.

I actually fixed my problem... I didn't have the disable-output-escaping="yes" inside my xsl statement...

I feel really dumb... I have changed this thread to solved and thank you, @mrame, for your help...
