Thanks all for your replies, specially to Tim Meals who had the exact
answer. Effectively, the problem was to enclose the parameter value both in
double quotes (") and in single quotes (').

So the working way of invoking Xalan is: java org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process
... -param ID "'U-05585'"

Thanks all for your support.

Try specifying your parameter with single quotes, or maybe escaping  
single quotes.  Xalan doesn't distinguish between string params like  
libxslt does.  Try one of the following:

java org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process ... -param ID 'U-05585'


java org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process ... -param ID "'U-05585'"

If your shell is interpreting the single quote characters.
