There is function replace()  in XSLT (look here) but if you're not anchored to XML it will be easier to use 1 row JavaScript replace to do this task.

For XPath sample look here

var x = "<href>mailto:?body=Content%20Link%20:%20http://localhost:8080/name1 name2.txt</href>";
var a = x.replace(/\s/g, '%20');
