Missing hypertext text

Hi!

Any specific modifications to the below listed XML / XSLT as to how to recreate the below listed functionality using XML & XSLT?

<A HREF="mywebpage.html">My Web Page</A>

Currently, all of the urls are listed but no custom text like the above "My Web Page".
In other words, I rather have a user friendly text like "About Us" in lieu of
http://www.sample.com/aboutus.html displayed but still have a functionaly hypertext.

Also, do you have to include the domain name as part of the <loc> tag value or just the pagename for a valid sitemap?

Sample: XML

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="sitemap.xsl"?>
 <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/sitemap.xsd">
 <url>
  <loc>http://www.sample.com/mywebpage.html</loc>
  <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
  <priority>1.00</priority>
  </url>
<url>
  <loc>http://www.sample.com/mynewpage.html</loc>
  <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
  <priority>1.00</priority>
  </url>
</urlset>

XSLT:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    xmlns:sm="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"
   version="1.0">
    <xsl:output method="html" indent="yes"/>
    <xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>
    <xsl:template match="sm:urlset">
        <html>
            <body>
                <xsl:apply-templates select="sm:url">
                    <xsl:sort select="sm:priority" order="descending" data-type="text"/>
                </xsl:apply-templates>
            </body>
        </html>
    </xsl:template>
    <xsl:template match="sm:url">
        <p>
            <a href="{sm:loc}">
                <xsl:value-of select="sm:loc"/>
            </a>
        </p>
    </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

XML sitemap don't have a way for adding a "name" of the relation
So you need to divert from the spec if you want to do that

There is no way creating the
"My New Page"
from
http://www.sample.com/mynewpage.html</loc>
unless you start stuffing full dictionairies in your XSLY

your best bet is to set the named reference as an extra element in the sitemap

<url>
  <loc>http://www.sample.com/mywebpage.html</loc>
  <alt>My Web Page</alt>
  <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
  <priority>1.00</priority>
  </url>

and in the xslt
          <a href="{sm:loc}">
                <xsl:value-of select="sm:alt"/>
            </a>

Actually to do what I just suggested, it would be more correct to use the sitemap.org extension mechanism
(using a different namespace)


<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="sitemap.xsl"?>
 <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" 
         xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
         xmlns:trueblue="http://www.trueblue.org/sitemap/extensions" 
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/sitemap.xsd">
 <url>
  <loc>http://www.sample.com/mywebpage.html</loc>
  <trueblue:alt>My Web Page</trueblue:alt>
  <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
  <priority>1.00</priority>
  </url>
<url>
