Note you never need to start a match with // as it does not change the
elements matched, just the default priority.
Also using xsl:element and xsl:attribute makes it look a lot more

<xsl:template match="XmlNode">
  <xsl:for-each select="*">
    <XMLNode Text="{.}">
      <xsl:value-of select="anyOtherValue" />
