Default hyperlinks in XSLT, please help.

I'm soo frustrated because I can't get this to render properly. I'm new to this so any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is my xml:

<sitename xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="C:\Documents and Settings\mellan\Desktop\X-Excersize\content.xsd">

    This is the header
This is just another test paragrast another test paragrast another test paragrast another test paragrast another test paragrast <links><link name="Link text" url="http://www.url.com"/></links>
another test asdasdfasdfparagrast another test paragraph


Here is my XSL where I'm trying to get this link to show in the actual paragraph (as structured above):

    <xsl:template match="bodycopy">
            <xsl:value-of select="header"/>
        <xsl:for-each select="paragraph">
                    <xsl:for-each select="links/link">
                            <xsl:attribute name="href">{@url}</xsl:attribute>
                            <xsl:value-of select="@url"/><p/>
            <xsl:value-of select="text()"/>

As you can see I tried nesting it but I'm certain this is a horrible way to do this. Can anyhow give me some direction?

Thanks so much,

Try something like this:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

    <xsl:template match="bodycopy">
    <xsl:apply-templates />

    <xsl:template match="header">
            <xsl:apply-templates />
        <xsl:apply-templates />

    <xsl:template match="paragraph">
        <p><xsl:apply-templates /></p>

    <xsl:template match="link">
        <a href="{@url}"><xsl:value-of select="@name" /></a>
