String expressions in XSL

in my XML file I have
I have to generate the following HTML sequences:
from the first reference:
...because I am in subclass A01B, thus the user should see only
which is sufficient for the user to recognize the referred location.
from the second reference:
<A href="@A01B001/00">A01B 1/00</A>
...because it is in another subclass, thus the user _must_ now that the
reference points to another subclass.
(The "@" designates "late-bound reference", used by another tool which
will resolve it a separate step.)
I have got about 800.000 of such references in about 20*15 MB XML data.
Have I got in XSL _any_ chance to generate these sequences?
I guess _no_. There seems to be _no_ string expression language neither
for patterns nor for "value-of".
Do I have to contaminate my source XML code with redundant data
(which I do now but I do not like it)
should I generate temporal XML files in Java, which is a neverending
story due to the sizes of the files
is it planned that at least regexp patterns will appear in XSL
is there a chance that there will be _again_ ECMAScript in XSL?
is there any XML transformation tool which is less painful to use than a
set of Java/Python/C/AWK/Perl programs?
Samples can be reached at http://www.arcanum.com/patclass/index.htm
These files were generated with proprietary tools which I plan to change
to XML tools, if I can.
I guess my problems are not too special.
Thanks for help.
