Hi Gantait,

You can use variables, for example:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

    <xsl:variable name="quot">&quot;</xsl:variable>
    <xsl:variable name="apos">&apos;</xsl:variable>
    <xsl:variable name="varVal">&quot; something &quot;</xsl:variable>

    <xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:value-of select="translate($varVal, $quot, $apos)" /><br />
        <xsl:value-of select="$varVal" />
