I'd like to change the values of attribute "href", whenever it appears

missing something?

    <xsl:template match="@href[parent::dao]">
        <xsl:attribute name="href">

In order to add an attribute to the result tree you are obliged to have just previously added an element to the result tree (and possibly other attributes to that element). Otherwise, there is no node to attach the attribute to.

I'm using XSLT 2.0, Saxon 6.5.5.

Unlikely ... Saxon 6.5.5 only supports XSLT 1.0.

I hope this helps.
