<A href="{.}"/A> should work.  The "{}" is called an attribute value
template, and is quite handy for specifying the value of an attribute in a
literal result element (an element that's not an XSL instruction - it
doesn't start with 'xsl:'>

A good online introduction is and there are others;
if you're willing to invest in a book I strongly recommend "XSLT
Programmer's Reference" by Mike Kay.
