I have the following requirement

Remove any entries for <dc:creator>Wiley InterScience (Online service)</dc:creator>
Remove full stops at end of entries
Separate entries with semicolon and space

Example:
<dc:creator>Ousey, Karen.</dc:creator>
<dc:creator>McIntosh, Caroline.</dc:creator>

"Ousey, Karen; McIntosh, Caroline"

Please look at the sample below. It has two assumptions, so probably need to be elaborated.
<mauthorpersons>
			<!-- Make sure the condition is an exact match! 
			     If it's not, invent more smart way to compare -->
		   <xsl:for-each select="dc:creator[. != 'Wiley InterScience (Online service)']">

			<!-- I assume, it's ok to remove all the dot characters from the string
				 If it's wrong approach, need something more complex -->
				<xsl:value-of select="translate(., '.', '')"/>
				<xsl:if test="position() != last()">
					<xsl:text>; </xsl:text>
    			</xsl:if>
          </xsl:for-each>
		</mauthorpersons>
