You need xsl:copy-of, not xsl:value-of, if you want to output the full
node. But if there is some default namespace declaration the suggested
XPath expression might not select anything.

  I tried the XSL that Liam suggested, but it isn't finding anything
  :(....  Below is the xsltproc run with -v:
  -bash-4.4$ xsltproc -v mulberry.xsl configfile.xml
  creating dictionary for stylesheet
  reusing dictionary from mulberry.xsl for stylesheet
  xsltParseStylesheetProcess : found stylesheet
  xsltPreprocessStylesheet: removing ignorable blank node
  xsltCompilePattern : parsing '/'
  xsltCompilePattern : parsed /, default priority 0.500000
  added pattern : '/' priority 0.500000
  parsed 1 templates
  Resolving attribute sets references
  Creating sub-dictionary from stylesheet for transformation
  Registered 0 modules
  reusing transformation dict for output
  Registering global variables
  Registering global variables from mulberry.xsl
  xsltProcessOneNode: applying template '/' for /
  xsltValueOf: select //Setting[@Name = 'TheOneIWant']
  xsltValueOf: result ''
  freeing transformation dictionary
  freeing dictionary from stylesheet

  Here's snippet of the XML file which should have matched:
  <Setting Name="TheOneIWant" Type="htf:map">
             &n bsp;  <Setting Name="requiresignedassertion"
             &n bsp;  <Setting Name="succinctid"

  . . </Setting> . .
  Also, I think that I may not have been clear about what I want as the
  output of running the XSLT...
  If the XSLT was successful, I want the output to be the ENTIRE
  matching node, including all the contents of the node, i.e.:
  <Setting Name="TheOneIWant" Type="htf:map">
  <Setting Name="requiresignedassertion"
  <Setting Name="succinctid"

  . . </Setting>
  That's why, in my original post, I thought I had to include use of
  the identity transformation.

  My apologies if I wasn't clear about that.
  Thanks, Jim

  Might need to use <xsl:output method="text"/> as well.

    I think what you want is simply XPath here.

    But with XSLT you could use,

    <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
    xmlns:xsl=" orm">

    <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:value-of select="//Setting[@Name = 'TheOneIWant']" />

    The xsl:value-of "instruction" evalueates its argument and
    converts the
    result to a string (actually a "text node").

    The contents of the "select" attribute is an XPath expression.
