Default xslt multi language

I am trying to make my xslt for multiple languages, what i do is i load in a text using this :

<xsl:value-of select="$lang.home/translations/info[lang($language)]/title"/>

this grabs the 'title' from the page 'home' with the current language.

This works ok, accept that inside this text (wich is in multiple languages) I have a link to another page (the contact page). This link is built up in xml so that I can apply the same template for each link.
The xml for this link doesn't get transformed by xml, the tags just disapear.

Am I getting my internationalization wrong, or is there an other tag that I should use instead of value-of? I tried using copy-of instead wich give me the tags, but they are just placed in the output like they were in xml (no transformations done)

Any help is apreciated

From your description it sounds as if you should be replacing <xsl:value-of select=""> with <xsl:apply-templates select="">.
