something like this?


  <xsl:call-template name="string-replace">
    <xsl:with-param name="from" select="'&apos;'"/>
    <xsl:with-param name="to" select="'\&apos;'"/> 
    <xsl:with-param name="string" select="."/>

<!-- replace all occurences of the character(s) `from'
     by the string `to' in the string `string'.-->
<xsl:template name="string-replace" >
  <xsl:param name="string"/>
  <xsl:param name="from"/>
  <xsl:param name="to"/>
    <xsl:when test="contains($string,$from)">
      <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($string,$from)"/>
      <xsl:value-of select="$to"/>
      <xsl:call-template name="string-replace">
      <xsl:with-param name="string" select="substring-after($string,$from)"/>
      <xsl:with-param name="from" select="$from"/>
      <xsl:with-param name="to" select="$to"/>
      <xsl:value-of select="$string"/>
