There is nothing like a <w:p> element or a </w:p> element in the data 
XSLT operates on. It operates on a tree of nodes. That tree might be 
created by parsing markup with start and end tags but when XSLT works on 
data there are no start tags or end tags, there are only nodes.
And when you create output you also create a tree of nodes, you are not 
creating tags. So xsl:element creates an element node in a result tree, 
it does not create start or end tags.

You might want to show us a sample of the input you have and the 
corresponding output you want to create with XSLT 1.0, then we can try 
to suggest an XSLT way of achieving that.
