If you are generating SQL from XML using XSLT, then you will soon be faced with the problem of unwanted quotes breaking your queries or worse; injecting unwanted data into your database.

As a solution you can escape any quotes using a named XSLT template.

In the example below we are escaping single quotes for use with PgSQL

The template:

<xsl:template name="escapesinglequotes">

 <xsl:param name="arg1"/>

 <xsl:variable name="apostrophe">’</xsl:variable>


  <!– this string has at least on single quote –>

  <xsl:when test="contains($arg1, $apostrophe)">

  <xsl:if test="string-length(normalize-space(substring-before($arg1, $apostrophe))) > 0"><xsl:value-of select="substring-before($arg1, $apostrophe)" disable-output-escaping="yes"/> ’</xsl:if>

   <xsl:call-template name="escapesinglequotes">

    <xsl:with-param name="arg1"><xsl:value-of select="substring-after($arg1, $apostrophe)" disable-output-escaping="yes"/></xsl:with-param>



  <!– no quotes found in string, just print it –>

  <xsl:when test="string-length(normalize-space($arg1)) > 0"><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space($arg1)"/></xsl:when>



This would be called as follows:

<xsl:call-template name="escapesinglequotes">

 <xsl:with-param name="arg1"><xsl:value-of select="."/></xsl:with-param>
