First of all, please mark up your code samples with http://p2p.wrox.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#code so that we can better read them.
I suspect you want something like
Code:
<xsl:template match="/">
  <html>
    <head>
      <title>Example</title>
    </head>
    <body>
       <xsl:apply-templates/>
    </body>
  </html>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="*[not(*) and normalize-space()]">
  <p><xsl:value-of select="concat('&lt;', local-name(), '&gt;', .)"/></p>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="*[not(*) and not(normalize-space())]"/>
That should output the name and contents of any leaf element containing some contents and ignore any empty elements.

Please use code tags as requested. I think the code I am seeing here is not what you pasted, because you didn't mark it up correctly. This makes it difficult to understand your problem.
