[xsl] Replace one entity with another

Subject: [xsl] Replace one entity with another

I have a complex XML file that I'm transforming into a simpler XML file.

<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:for-each select="document/record">
<xsl:value-of select="short_description"/>

My problem is that many of <description> elements contain &#153; in their content, and I need to replace all of these with &#x2022;

I can't get my head around how to do this. I understand GREP, so if a regular exp. needs to be built to do this, I can handle that. But I can't figure out how to manipulate the content of elements with XSL. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
