Your path is incomplete. 

<xsl:template match="/">
	<xsl:for-each select="struct/member/value[string='Syndicated']">

Your template match is putting your context at the root of the document so your for-each is looking for a "struct" node relative to the root, but there isn't one.

You can fully specify the path like this:
<xsl:for-each select="methodResponse/params/param/value/array/data/value/struct/member/value[string='Syndicated']">

This explicitly tells the xpath processor where to find the nodes.

Okay hope I am not asking something so basic everyone thinks I am a dunce but i have an xml document that comes from a web service like this

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?> 
           <methodResponse>
                <params>
                       <param>
                            <value>
                                <array>
                                    <data>
                                         <value>
                                              <struct>
                                                 <member>
                                                      <name>feedid</name> 
                                                      <value>
                                                             <string>2403</string> 
                                                      </value>
                                                 </member>
                                                 <member>
                                                      <name>status</name> 
                                                      <value>
                                                            <string>Syndicated</string> 
                                                      </value>
                                                 </member>
                                              </struct>
                                        </value>
                                  </data>
                             </array>
                       </value>
                 </param>
            </params>
  </methodResponse>

I have tried to transform it with something like this 

<xsl:template match="/">
	<xsl:for-each select="struct/member/value[string='Syndicated']">
		<xsl:value-of select="name" />
		:
		<xsl:value-of select="string" />
		;<br />
		</xsl:for-each>
	</xsl:for-each>
</xsl:template>

but this doesnt seem to work.  I am a newbie with this whole thing and really need some guidance on how this whole xsl xml thing goes together.  Sorry if I have missed the obvious or broken any rules.
