RE: intro, and quick newbie-ish question!
Well, I can't give you a direct solution, but I can make two comments that may or may not help :) First, it's XSLT not XMLT. It stands for the Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformation. It is called this because it was initially 1/2 of XSL (extensible stylesheet language) and in fact is still 1/2 of XSL, but is also it's own separate standard.

The parser will throw an error for this before it even gets to the XSLT processor. I'm not sure (haven't tried it), but the Translate function may be able to help with the remainder of the problem (removing ' and . characters). You would need to put the string you want to clean up in a variable and then use the function on the string to get your final output.
