Default Replace xml attribs vals with xslt

Hello Dear Friends.
I need your help today cause I need to deliver my result tomorrow. Pls send your response to my email also at steve_eshtry@hotmail.com.
I need to replace the value of some attributes in my xml with new values passed as parameters using xslt and vbscript mentioned bellow. It works fine for elements values not for attributes values. If you find another working xslt version, it is fine too.
Please help.
Kind Regards
Andy (Steve)
HERE IS XSLT (INPUT PARAMS ARE $drive1target AND $drive1replacement)

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
     version="1.0">
<xsl:output method="xml" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>
<xsl:param name="drive1target"/>
<xsl:param name="drive1replacement"/>
<xsl:template name="globalReplace">
  <xsl:param name="outputString"/>
  <xsl:param name="target1"/>
  <xsl:param name="replacement1"/>
  <xsl:choose>
    <xsl:when test="contains($outputString,$target1)">
      <xsl:value-of select=
        "concat(substring-before($outputString,$target1),
               $replacement1)"/>
      <xsl:call-template name="globalReplace">
        <xsl:with-param name="outputString"
             select="substring-after($outputString,$target1)"/>
        <xsl:with-param name="target1" select="$target1"/>
        <xsl:with-param name="replacement1" select="$replacement1"/>
      </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:when>
    <xsl:otherwise>
      <xsl:value-of select="$outputString"/>
    </xsl:otherwise>
  </xsl:choose>
</xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="text()">
  <xsl:call-template name="globalReplace">
  <xsl:with-param name="outputString" select="."/>
  <xsl:with-param name="target1" select="$drive1target"/>
  <xsl:with-param name="replacement1" select="$drive1replacement"/>
  </xsl:call-template>
</xsl:template>
HERE IS THE VBSCRIPT
Set objXML = CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument.3.0")
Set objXSL = CreateObject("MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.3.0")
objXML.validateOnParse = True
objXSL.validateOnParse = True
objXML.async = False
objXSL.async = False
objXML.load "G_MapLayOrig.xml"
objXSL.load "XSLTMain.xsl"
Set template = CreateObject("MSXML2.XSLTemplate.3.0")
template.stylesheet = objXSL
Set processor = template.createProcessor()
processor.input = objXML
processor.addParameter "drive1target","S:\"
processor.addParameter "drive1replacement","DRIVEPATH1"
processor.transform()
objXML.loadxml processor.output
processor.input = objXML
processor.addParameter "drive1target","H:"
processor.addParameter "drive1replacement","DRIVEPATH2"
processor.transform()
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set Objfile= objFSO.CreateTextFile("G_MapLay.xml", True)
objfile.Write processor.output
objfile.Close
HERE IS THE XML
<Settings>
<viewer_type path="S:\App.exe"><file_extension>txt</file_extension>
<file_extension>log</file_extension>
</viewer_type>
<viewer_type path="H:\Program Files\ Office\Office\winword.exe"><file_extension>doc</file_extension><file_extension>rtf</file_extension></viewer_type><viewer_type path="C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\ImageVue\kodakprv.exe">

Sorry, but I never respond to requests if they are urgent. I try to help people learn the language, I don't try to help you meet your project deadlines.

I understand your point Michael pretty well and I believe I need to learn the languauge because it is very useful and instresting. I am a .net programmer and xslt is not my specialty and know I faced this problem. I am trying to learn and solve the problem by myself (reading part 5.4 of http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt) know.

Anyway, if you or other friends can help me, it is much appreciated.
I promise the help does not stops me to learn that powerful useful language. ;)
