Maybe you need to post both XSLT and XML as attachments.
Without further specification we don't know what is wrong

Note that this works on text replacements,
your HTML tags likely are gone because that are element nodes who are not copied

I use the following template to replace a string
        <xsl:template name="replace-str">
            <xsl:param name="str"/>
            <xsl:param name="find"/>
            <xsl:param name="replace"/>
            <xsl:choose>
                <xsl:when test="contains($str, $find)">
                    <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($str, $find)"/>
                    <xsl:value-of select="$replace"/>
                    <xsl:call-template name="replace-str">
                        <xsl:with-param name="str" select="substring-after($str, $find)"/>
                        <xsl:with-param name="find" select="$find"/>
                        <xsl:with-param name="replace" select="$replace"/>
                    </xsl:call-template>
                </xsl:when>
                <xsl:otherwise>
                    <xsl:value-of select="$str"/>
                </xsl:otherwise>
            </xsl:choose>
        </xsl:template>

and I try to replace the code for this XML, this is only portion of the XML
<S>
<b>...</b>
<b>Staff</b>
 directory. Please email amendments to your entry in the 
<b>staff</b>
 directory
<br/>
 to Oracle. Useful number: IS Service Desk: 012 2182 
<b>...</b>
</S>

The problem when I used the template all the <b> and <br> was scraped.

I need more of your XSLT
As I allready expressed earlier seems indeed to be the cause of this problem

If you pass the content of S to the named template,
all the text nodes will be concatenated and sent in the replace functionality
and you loose all the <b>

what you need to do is apply-templates for all nodes at the S level
and call the replacing functionality on both S/text() as S/b/text()

If you post more of your XSLT (maybe the template for S)
I can fix it

to give more detail

    <xsl:template match="S">
        <xsl:call-template name="replace-str">
            <xsl:with-param name="find" select="'a'"/>
            <xsl:with-param name="replace" select="'FOO'"/>
            <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."/>
        </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:template>

select="." in the param $str will flatten the text-nodes out

Here is how to fix that
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    version="1.0">
    
    <xsl:template match="S">
        <xsl:apply-templates/>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template match="S/*">
        <xsl:copy>
            <xsl:apply-templates/>
        </xsl:copy>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template match="S/*/text() | S/text()">
        <xsl:call-template name="replace-str">
            <xsl:with-param name="find" select="'a'"/>
            <xsl:with-param name="replace" select="'FOO'"/>
            <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."/>
        </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template name="replace-str">
        <xsl:param name="str"/>
        <xsl:param name="find"/>
        <xsl:param name="replace"/>
        <xsl:choose>
            <xsl:when test="contains($str, $find)">
                <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($str, $find)"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="$replace"/>
                <xsl:call-template name="replace-str">
                    <xsl:with-param name="str" select="substring-after($str, $find)"/>
                    <xsl:with-param name="find" select="$find"/>
                    <xsl:with-param name="replace" select="$replace"/>
                </xsl:call-template>
            </xsl:when>
            <xsl:otherwise>
                <xsl:value-of select="$str"/>
            </xsl:otherwise>
        </xsl:choose>
    </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
