That wouldn't be well-formed XML, and stylesheets have to be
well-formed XML. You need an attribute value template:

  <a href="{@name}/file.xml">
    <xsl:value-of select="@name" />

In attribute values on literal result elements (like the <a> element,
not on XSLT instructions like the <xsl:value-of> element), anything
within {}s is interpreted as an XPath expression and the result of
evaluating that expression is inserted into the attribute value.
