You can certainly do it using a combination of substring-before(),
substring-after(), and a recursive template - one that calls itself
again.  But it would be even better if you could avoid generating this
format in the first place.  Is there any chance of that?  It looks like
you are going through geistry entries.  If so, whatever tool you are
using could possibly be persuaded to make the changes, or you could
write a regular expression to do it in Python (or sed, awk, perl, etc).

If I had to capture this kind of information, I would think about using
an xml format more like this -

   <PARAM>C:\Documents and Settings\clemens\Desktop\Clemens XML</PARAM>

Even if the backslashes were still double, this would be easier to work
with (although you would still need a recursive template to change

Dimitre Novatchev's fxsl functional library could also do the job
(hiding any recursive templates so you would not see them).
