It seems to me that APNameSplit was originally written for arguments
"text" that might contain more than one semicolon - note the recursive
invocation after splitting off the first part. I've removed everything that
does not agree with the new spec of "<one>;<<two>".

 <tr>
 <td valign="top" width="180">Adverse Party:</td>
 <xsl:apply-templates select="APName" />
 </tr>

 <xsl:template name="APNameSplit">
  <xsl:param name="text" select="string('')"/>
   <xsl:choose>
      <xsl:when test="contains($text,$find)">
         <td valign="top" style="font-weight:normal">
           <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($text,';')"/>
         </td>
         <td valign="top" style="font-weight:normal">
           <xsl:value-of  select="substring-after($text,';')"/>
         </td>
     </xsl:when>
     <xsl:otherwise>
      <td colspan="2" valign="top" style="font-weight:normal">
        <xsl:value-of select="$text"/>
      </td>
     </xsl:otherwise>
   </xsl:choose>
 </xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="APName">
   <xsl:call-template name="APNameSplit">
     <xsl:with-param name="text" select="."/>
   </xsl:call-template>
 </xsl:template>
