Put the xpath in an apply-templates:

<xsl:apply-templates select=" the xpath to select the elements goes here "/>

and then add a template:

<xsl:template match=" the match pattern ">


Don't use for-each.  You might need to add a mode if you already have
templates matching the elements you are processing here.

You don't need the if test because if the apply-templates selects
nothing, nothing will get processed.
