As Michael Kay said, the best place to look for answers is xslt-list.
I'll go ahead and give you a very limited answer:

  Given an input of:
    <file location="http://www.evrsoft.com";>Download</link>

  The following template:
    <xsl:template match="file">
      <!-- {xxxx} is an attribute value template. The curly braces
           tell the processor to evaluate the contents as an expression
           - otherwise they are treated as literal text. -->
      <a href="{@location}">
        <xsl:value-of select="."/>

  Will produce this output:
    <a href="http://www.evrsoft.com";>EvrSoft</a>

Now, if that doesn't solve your problem, then you are probably lacking 
some basic knowledge about how to do XSLT, in which case you have
two choices: (1) post a precise and thorough description of what you 
are trying to do and the results you are getting (including sample 
code), or (2) find a good XSLT book or online tutorial and start 

It's not that we don't want to help, but the question as presented is
a lot like calling up your ISP's tech support and saying, "I can't get 
on the Internet." Just like the ISP tech, we need more information to 
even take a reasonable guess at the cause of the problem.
