At 02:37 PM 3/3/2010, you wrote:
Yes, the Option Number might not start with 55 in some cases, I would
like to handle them as well.

But this amounts to saying "I know that the code I wrote is wrong, and I would like it to be correct".

What would be correct? Telling us what would be wrong is not, by itself, a specification.

We can't possibly guess, given what you have told us, what option numbers there might be in the following examples:

Text1 055-0001 Text1
Text2 X055-0002 Text2
Text3 055-0003 Text3 055-0003 Text3
Text4 045-0004
055-0005 Text5
Text9 9 Text9
Text10 XYZ-0010 Text10
12-055 Text12


I do not have option of moving to XSLT 2.0 at this time.

That's a pity.

Please suggest me ,how this can be done in XSLT 1.0.

It could perhaps be done by a creative use of string functions (similar to what you have tried), or possibly a recursive string processing algorithm. Or maybe not. Maybe you need a brute force test against a set of known values.
