What you have in your example is a string that happens to be a quoted
XML document.

XSLT 3 and XPath 3 (and XQuery 3) will include a function to help you.
Otherwise, either you have to use a vendor-specific extension, or
extract the string as a string and then run XSLT or XPath on it

Another possibility is to use an XML parser written in XSLT; I think in
fact there is at least one of those floating around.
