XSL: escape ' character

how can I escape the ' character in the word "don't"? That's my source:

<xsl:variable name="text.general.ifNotRegistered" select="'If you don't
have a user, please'"/>

Thx ,

To get a ' into an XPath string literal you need to use " to surround
the string as in

"If you don't have a user, please"

then to get that expression into an XML attribute you either delimit
with ' and quote the '

select='"If you don&apos;t have a user, please"'

or delimit with " and quote the "

select="&quot;If you don't have a user, please&quot;"

Or for most purposes you can use the aternaive form using content not an
attribute and not have to quote anything

<xsl:variable name="text.general.ifNotRegistered"
>If you don't have a user, please</xsl:variable>
