If I specify a match which looks like this:

<xsl:template match="Circle|Square">
<xsl:value-of select="name"/>

And then try to select on it, I can do either one of the following and it
will work.
<xsl:apply-templates select='//Circle[@ID=normalize($target)]'/>
<xsl:apply-templates select='//Square[@ID=normalize($target)]'/>

However what I want to do is say "find me the name of EITHER the Circle or
the Square 
that has an attribute 'ID' equal to a specified value. ID is unique but I
know if it is a Circle or a Square.
I am new to XSL so while it is probably easy I haven't found the solution
