That's a syntax error, as an Xpath expression can't end with ** (The
second * is a multiplication operator, and needs a second operand.

You could have

                <xsl:for-each select="//*">
                    <xsl:apply-templates select="article"/>

But that would mean search the entire document and find every element,
and for each elelemt, apply templates to that elements article children.
I doubt you really want that. You didn't show enough of your input
document for me to suggest what you do want here.

also you have

 $extract!='extract u

The byte before extract is hex 85, which encoding are you using for your

To remove the space after the last . If you are using xslt2 then you can
apply a simple regex, something like replace(extract,'\.[^\.*]','.')
otherwise in xslt1 you need either an extension function to do teh same,
or a recursive template that splits on . and discards the last section.

(assuming you don't have any elements in the extract element that you
need to preserve)
