Retrieve complete XML

I need to retrive the complete data of an XML associated with an XSL. The data should include node names along with values. This data must be accessible through an XSL variable.

I tried the following statements:

<xsl:variable name="all">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:value-of select="$all"/>

But it displayed only node values. But I also need node names along with the "<" and ">" delimiters.

Can anybody please tell, how do I go about retrieving the XML through XSL?

Use xsl:copy-of instead of xsl:value-of.

Is XSLT based on XPath? :roll:

No, but XSLT uses XPath.
