[Note the reminder from the list owner posted again today to use relevant
subject lines.]

    I tried without success:

    <xsl:template match="foo[normalize-space(text())='Value']">

That should work, it matches on those foo elements for which the first
text node has normalised value 'Value'.

<foo>Value     </foo>


<foo name="bar"> 

would match, but

<foo name="bar"> 

wouldn't as the first text node child of foo in this case is white space
(so an empty string after normalize-space)

Of course if another template matches the same nodes with higher
priority or import precedence, the template won't have any effect even
if this pattern does match.
