Re:  Enclosing sequence items in single quotes
After adding the appropriate namespace declaration, this template does the trick, thanks.

<xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:variable name='pf-codes' select="position-translation/position/code[@pf='pf']" as="xs:string+"/>
     <xsl:value-of separator="," select="for $c in $pf-codes return concat('''', $c, '''')"/>

in which case $pf-codes must be a sequence of one item, rather than a
sequence of many items...

looking back at your original post you have:

<xsl:variable name='pf-codes'>
  <xsl:value-of select="position-translation/position/code[@pf='pf']"/>

which would cause what you're seeing - you probably want:

<xsl:variable name='pf-codes'

..which would give you sequence of many items.
