In my XSL I am creating a href by calling the javascript OpenMetaData and passing in a value.  When displaying the link in the browser window from my XSL, I want to display the link along with some text that should NOT be included in the href/link.

This gives an error loading xsl doc: (It doesn't seem to like the line feed that I specified)

<td valign="center" class="tableentry">

                <xsl:element name="a">

                                <xsl:attribute name="href">

                                                javascript:OpenMetadata(244,'U','<xsl:value-of select="$lstactivities[1]/instructorid" />','','MDT','width=600,height=650,left=50,top=50,resizable=no');

                                </xsl:attribute>

                                <xsl:value-of select="$lstactivities[1]/instructor" />

                                <xsl:value-of select="&#x0D" />

                                <xsl:text>(</xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="$countofdays" /><xsl:text>)</xsl:text>

                </xsl:element>

This one includes the text (parentheses, number, parentheses) as part of the hyperlink, so the hyperlink no longer works):
This works as far as xsl – but hyperlink is incorrect

   <td valign="center" class="tableentry">

                   <xsl:element name="a">

                                 <xsl:attribute name="href">

                                                       javascript:OpenMetadata(244,'U','<xsl:value-of select="$lstactivities[1]/instructorid" />','','MDT','width=600,height=650,left=50,top=50,resizable=no');

                                     </xsl:attribute>
                                      <xsl:value-of select="$lstactivities[1]/instructor" />

                                      <xsl:text>(</xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="$countofdays" /><xsl:text>)</xsl:text>

                  </xsl:element>

Basically, right after the actual hyperlink, I need a line feed/carriage return, before specifying the text.
