There's a problem in that you want a literal entity reference (&linktext;)
in the output. You can't do that in XSLT. Besides, this is for an HTML
browser, right? It won't know what &linktext; is. Was this a typo? Where 
is the linktext entity defined?

Anyway, you're making a common mistake. There is a curly-brace syntax that 
makes it much easier for you:

<a href="javascript:launchApp('{ESP/USERNAME}','{ESP/APPID},'{ESP/PATH}');" class="whatever">Click here</a> to link to ESP.
