    <xsl:output method="xml" indent="no" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>

    <xsl:template match="Phone" >

  • Open the Properties from the icon and then double click on the new Block-type.
    Rename the Block type to BasicBlock Change the HandleAs value to XHTML and change the tamplate to the previous template (Basic).

    Select a name (ex.Page1) and BasicBlock for blockType.
