Default Render HTML tags

I have this XML:

    This is some text.<br /><br /><quote>This is a quote.</quote>
    <br /><br />Some more text.<br /><br />One more line.
The XSL:

<xsl:template match="/">

<xsl:template match="quote">
       <xsl:copy-of select="."/>
The problem:
The linebreaks don't render. Is there a way around this?

You need to add another template rule:

<xsl:template match="br">

The default rule copies the content of an element but not the tags.
