Default String concatenation with linking

I've the below 4 cases in XML. I need a template match with regex tht can solve my below problem.

HTML Code:
<secondaryie>Practice Direction, PD1.1/1—PD1.1/9</secondaryie>
<secondaryie>preliminary act</secondaryie>
<secondaryie>collision actions, 75/20</secondaryie>
<secondaryie>failure to lodge, E75/19/32</secondaryie>
And the output i'm expecting is as below.

HTML Code:
<div class="secondaryie">Practice Direction,<a href="sec_1_PD1-1/1">PD1.1/1</a><a href="sec_1_PD1-1/9">PD1.1/9</a><div>
<div class="secondaryie">preliminary act<div>
<div class="secondaryie">collision actions,<a href="sec_1_P75/20">75/20</a><div>
<div class="secondaryie">failure to lodge,<span class="invalid">E75/19/32</span><div>
here for the last case the hint is, if the number is preceded any character apart from PD, it should create an invalid tag. Please let me know how i can do this.

Tried XSLT is as below

HTML Code:
 <xsl:template match="secondaryie">
        <div class="secondaryie">

<xsl:template match="text()">

        <xsl:analyze-string select="." regex="[\d/]+">

                <xsl:variable name="range" select="tokenize(.,'—')"/>
                <xsl:variable name="pg" select="tokenize(.,'/')"/>
    <xsl:when test="not(contains('ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ',substring(.,1,1)))">

                    <xsl:when test="contains($pg[3],'—')">
                        <xsl:variable name="range-pg" as="item()*">
                            <xsl:for-each select="$range">
                                <xsl:sequence select="tokenize(.,'/')"/>
                        <xsl:for-each select="xs:integer($range-pg[3]) to xs:integer($range-pg[6])">
                            <a href="er:#HKWBV1_ORD_{
                                if (string(number($range-pg[1]))!='NaN') then 
                                <xsl:value-of select="concat(string-join($range-pg[position()=(1,2)],'/'),'/',.)"/>
                            <xsl:text>, </xsl:text>
                        <a href="er:#HKWBV1_ORD_{
                            if (string(number($pg[1]))!='NaN') then 
                            <xsl:value-of select="."/>


    <xsl:when test="contains('PD',substring(.,1,2))">

<a href="{concat('HKWBV1_SEC_',substring-after(substring-before(.,'/'),'PD'),'/PPD',translate(substring-after(.,'PD'),'.','-'))}">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>

    <span class="invalid">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>  
                <xsl:value-of select="."/>
