How do you know the html elements are being removed? Are you doing the 
parsing on the command line? If what you mean is that you're viewing 
the document in Internet Explorer and you're not getting the desired 
font effects, the problem is simply that the HTML elements are *not 
recognized as HTML* because they are within an XML document.

Do you have any sort of a stylesheet? If you want to display a nicely 
formatted document in a browser, you're going to need at least CSS, and
probably XSLT.
