Need help selecting nodes based on children

Need help selecting nodes based on children

I would think this should be easy, but I am relatively new to XSL stylesheets, and I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.  Essentially, I only want to include branches that have a specific end node.  For instance, I only want the branches that have the tag <TargetID>Default</TargetID>.  Given this input:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<AddedECN NAME="AddedECN" TYPE="Unknown" STATUS="0">
    <TargetID>Oracle 11i</TargetID>
    <TargetID>Oracle 11i New</TargetID>
    <TargetID>Oracle 11i New 10-26</TargetID>
<ChangedECN NAME="ChangedECN" TYPE="Unknown" STATUS="0">
<UnchangedECN NAME="UnchangedECN" TYPE="Unknown" STATUS="0">

I am looking for this output:

<UnchangedECN NAME="UnchangedECN" TYPE="Unknown" STATUS="0">

The actual XML file has many more entries, of course.  But a start would really help me.

It would be easier to determine this if we could see your actual stylesheet...
