I'm using the xsl:copy that copy just the text values and not the
structure. In fact, if I wrap the xsl:copy in a new element, in the
result tree I have the new element and, inside, the text values of
source elements. The xsl:copy is using the XSLT built-in template.

Not quite ... the definition of <xsl:copy> is only to add the current node to the result tree. <xsl:copy> says nothing about descendent text values. In your stylesheet you had <xsl:apply-templates> where the nodes being pushed at your stylesheet were being handled by the built-in template rules. It is the effect of the built-in template rules that added the text value to the result tree, not the effect of <xsl:copy/>

Instead, xsl:copy-of uses a own template that consist of to keep the
copied structure.

Not a template, the instruction is just defined as copying the nodes.

I hope this helps.
