xslt translate quote
Even when trying to replace with the " with a single character it does
not work.

Example

 <xsl:element name = "OrganizationCode">
 	<xsl:text>"</xsl:text>
 	<xsl:value-of select =
 "translate(../@OrganizationCode,'\"','B'"/>
 	<xsl:text>"</xsl:text>
 </xsl:element>

Both methods fail because translate() replaces one character with
another single character.  You have to write a recursive template - it
is not hard.  See Dave Pawson's FAQ pages, especially
