in xslt 2 you can do almost what  you suggest:

<input type="text" value="{(un,'Please enter your username')[1]}" />

You need to use , not | as | is a for union of node sequences, and a
string isn't a node but the new xpath2 , operator works with arbitrary

in XSLT 1 (or 2) use

<input type="text" value="Please enter your username">
  <xsl:apply-templates seelct="un"/>

<xsl:template match="un">
 <xsl:attribute name="value"><xsl:value-of select="."/></xsl;attribute>
