Yeah, you're doing something really stupid -- you've just missed some
quotes :) You're doing:

  <xsl:value-of select='positive'/>

when you mean to do:

  <xsl:value-of select="'positive'"/>

though personally, I'd just use literal text rather than an
<xsl:value-of> instruction:
<xsl:template match="medical_assessment/tb_test_positive |
      <xsl:when test=". = 'true' or . = '1'">positive</xsl:when>
      <xsl:when test=". = 'false' or . = '0'">negative</xsl:when>
