Re:  replace
I want to replace "a" by "b" inside "/root/@description" . I'm using XSLT 1.0 as I copied this code example from the web. it's not working with 2.0 either anyways. I'm not restricted to any version. All I need is to be able to replace string .
Thank you

I suspect you want select="'a'" and select="'b'".

Why are you still using XSLT 1.0, as a matter of interest? I can understand
it if you're in a constrained environment, e.g. in a browser, but if you're
using Saxon then that's clearly not the case. Doing string manipulation in
1.0 when you could be using 2.0 seems like pure masochism to me.

I'm sorry, I know this question has been asked several times
but ... After searching everywhere I could not get the
replace function working.
See my code below you'll see what I'm trying to accomplish.
All I need is a simple working example that is replacing a
pattern withing a value.
Any hint would be appreciated. I'm using SAXON 6.5.5 (java
-jar saxon.jar)

Thank you
