XML is NOT good for storing passwords, simply because it's not secured. If I know the URL of the file, I can always see it. And if I don't, there are applications which can crawl through all of your site's content and find it. Such applications are only stopped by "forbidden" errors by the server, however such error also stops every other file to access something from that folder, making it useless.Using XSLT alone, you can't do that. With some client side scripting however I think it might be possible, but it's still not secured.Use SQL to store secured information such as passwords and server side scrtipting for manipulation.
