A stylesheet must be well-formed XML, so you can't use instructions inside
an attribute.

You want

 <A>
  <xsl:attribute name="href">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="article_url"/>
  </xsl:attribute>

Or in your case I don't think you actually need apply-templates, you could
write

<A href="{article_url}">

This thing is called an attribute value template; the thing inside the curly
braces is an XPath expression which is evaluated as a string.
