	<xsl:for-each select="*/menuItem[ancestor-or-self::pageID =

that selects menuItem's that have an ancestor, or are a pageID element
with the supplied value, but clearly a menuItem is never a pageID and
looking at your input I don't think it ever as pageID has ancestor.

I think you want to know if the current eleemnt or ancestor has a pageID
child, so that's

	<xsl:for-each select="*/menuItem[ancestor-or-self::menuItem/pageID =

or just coming down rather than going down and up each time:

	<xsl:for-each select="*/menuItem[pageID = $pageID]/descendant-or-self::menuItem">
