XML / XSL Disparity

I am writing a very simple, Java based, search engine for XML
documents. I commonly use XSL for presentation of my XML
documents. I find that it is useful to modify or add to the contents
of the XML using XSL for presentation purposes. Are there any
provisions for allowing a user to search for what they see and get the
document/view using a general purpose search engine? Obviously,
one can not just search the XML file.
As an example, imagine a date stored as 19980604 in an XML file.
An XSL file converts that to 06-04-1998 for presentation. The user
writes that date down and later searches for it but....
Any advice is appreciated.
