You don't actually ask a question but I'm guessing you want to know how
to use string-length(), substring() and subtraction?

Here's one way to do what I think you are asking for, padding with
leading zeros:

<xsl:variable name="s" select=" concat('0000000000', $input) " />
<xsl:value-of select="substring($s, 1 + string-length($s) - 10, 10)" />

Note, If this is homework, please at least take the time to understand
the solution - maybe use pencil and paper... assuming it does work - I
didn't try it.
