This is a FAQ.

&apos; is reported by the XML parser as a ' so

match="//subjectterm[text()='Employees&apos; rights and

is reported to the XSLT engine as

//subjectterm[text()='Employees' rights and obligations'

which is an Xpath pattern syntax error. (Also you don't ever want to
start a pattern with // but that's not the issue here)

To get a ' into a an Xpath string you need to use " to delimit the
string so that's

//subjectterm[text()="Employees' rights and obligations"

which you can then put into XMl as

match="//subjectterm[text()=&quot;Employees' rights and


match='//subjectterm[text()="Employees&apos; rights and
