in reply to XML / regex - cleaning up attributes

As other monks have pointed out, that's far from valid XML but to answer your specific question...

Is there a regex that will remove this extra punctuation but leave the rest of the attribute (and tag) intact?

Sure, you can hack your way around broken XML with something like s/STORE'N'GO/STORENGO/ but don't, it's much better to consume actual XML.
