I don't think you have posted enough to be able to debug that.
Looking back at the start of the thread:


] my xsl:
] --------------------------------------------------------------
] <xsl:template match="text()">
]    <xsl:call-template name="change" >
] 	<xsl:with-param name="text" select="."/>
]    </xsl:call-template>
] </xsl:template>
] 
] <xsl:template name="change">
]    <xsl:param name="text"/>
] 	<xsl:value-of select="$text"/>
] 	<xsl:choose>
] 		<xsl:when test="contains($text, '$')">
] 			<xsl:value-of select="substring-before($text, '$')"/>
] 	      		&#8364;
] 		   	<xsl:call-template name="change">
] 			    <xsl:with-param name="text" select="substring-after($text,'$')"/>
] 			</xsl:call-template>
] 		</xsl:when>
] 		<xsl:otherwise>
] 			<xsl:value-of select="$text"/>
] 		</xsl:otherwise>
] 	</xsl:choose>
] </xsl:template>
] 
] --------------------------------------------------------------
] 
] my xml:
] --------------------------------------------------------------
] <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-15"?>
] <test>
]     <header>
]         <creation date="2005-01-10" timestamp="1105349670236" user="sven" login="sven" />
]     </header>

] </test>

Your input is in ISO-8859-15 in which case (if I remember correctly)
$ is the euro character ie it's already character 8364 so it isn't clear
what you are tryting to replace.

If your template was called, it would replace the $ by a newline,
several tabs and spaces, a euro, another newline and  several more tabs
and spaces. You should always put literal text in xsl:text if you don't
want the stylesheet indentation to be copied to the result tree.

You haven't shown the encoding declaration for your stylesheet.
You use the literal string $  but that could mean anything (depending on
the encoding specified in the stylesheet).

also you haven't shown your other templates, do you ever apply templates
to the text nodes in question?
