<xsl:value-of select="format-number(MarketValue,'#,##0.00')" />
to become
<xsl:value-of select="translate(format-number(MarketValue,'#,##0.00'), ',' ' ')" />

The proper way however would be to make the space an active character by means of a named xsl:decimal-format
if you make the space the grouping seperator, you can directly use that

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <xsl:decimal-format name="my-format" grouping-separator=" "/>
    <xsl:template match="test">
            <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">R </xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="format-number(MarketValue,'# ##0.00', 'my-format')" />

please look carefully at the xml I sent
there is decimal-format definition, you need to copy that
    <xsl:decimal-format name="my-format" grouping-separator=" "/>
and reference it as I showed in my XSLT

I have two comments with your reply
1. You did not do what I suggested, of course there are errors
2. It would help if you told at least what the error was you are experiencing.

Please do some small effort yourself of integrating my suggestion with your code
