A stylesheet must be well-formed XML, so you can't use instructions inside
an attribute.

You want

  <xsl:attribute name="href">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="article_url"/>

Or in your case I don't think you actually need apply-templates, you could

<A href="{article_url}">

This thing is called an attribute value template; the thing inside the curly
braces is an XPath expression which is evaluated as a string.
