the code you posted, with Michael's change, would do that assuming teh
EXSLT template is at the location implied by you rxsl:import.

I suspect that you mean that you want to output the rest of the document
unchanged, except for this change. XSLT will not do that automatically
you neeed to add an "identity template" that copies each node from the
input to the output. (google for modified identity tramsformation, or
see examples in the faq or Jeni's site) the code you posted would just
output the string value of the @description output, with the replacement
In XSLT2 you don't need any replace templates, just
will do the job.
Actually if you real example is a single letter you don't need anything
other than
which would also work in xslt 1
