Your test

<xsl:if test="contains(child::text(),'Euro')">

is testing whether the first child::text() node contains the string
'Euro'. In your case the string is in the second child text node (the
first one contains whitespace only).

Instead, test whether the string value of the element contains 'Euro':

<xsl:if test="contains(.,'Euro')">
