Hi experts

I'm writing xsl for existing xml file and I have problem with displaying node text.
What i have to do is to keep order of text values of child nodes. I explain it on following example:

I have xml file (a part)
<page nr="8">
  <page_text>
  text 1
  <br/>
  text 2
  <br/>
  <graph>
    <path>images\PN_2007_0001.PNG</path>
   <br/>
  </graph>
  text 3
  <br/>
  <graph>
    <path>images\PN_2007_0002.PNG</path>
   <br/>
  </graph>
  text 4
  </page_text>
</page nr="8">

now, I have to retain the order of values:
text 1
text 2
<....image...>
text 3
<....image...>
text 4


I wrote the following code but I cant put text properly.

<xsl:for-each select="page">
  Page <xsl:value-of select="@nr"/><br/>
 
  <xsl:for-each select="page_text/*">
    <xsl:variable name="v_node" select="name()" />
   
    <xsl:choose>
      <xsl:when test="$v_node = 'graph'">
        <img><xsl:attribute name="src"><xsl:value-of select="path"/></xsl:attribute></img>
        <br/>
      </xsl:when>
      <xsl:when test="$v_node = 'br'">
        <br/>
      </xsl:when>
    </xsl:choose>  
  </xsl:for-each>
</xsl:for-each>

The question is how to get text of "page_text" node partially to put it between images?

Can You help me solve the problem?
Thanks for all help

Try this:
<xsl:for-each select="page_text/*|page_text/text()">
    <xsl:choose>
      <xsl:when test="self::graph">
        <img><xsl:attribute name="src"><xsl:value-of select="path"/></xsl:attribute></img>
        <br/>
      </xsl:when>
      <xsl:when test="self::br">
        <br/>
      </xsl:when>
      <xsl:otherwise>
        <xsl:value-of select="."/>
      </xsl:otherwise>
    </xsl:choose>  
  </xsl:for-each>
