generic filtering
I haven't done XSLT for quite some time, and its amazing how much l
have forgotten.

I have a very simple problem of having to filter out a specific xml
element. In the example below, it is <Header>, but it should be able to
be passed down as a parameter. From memory, l need to use the name
function and test it against the current node, but l have tried doing
this but to no avail.

How can the following xml document be filtered in a generic manner?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <ElementOne id="1">hello</ElementOne>
        <ElementTwo id="2"> why not</ElementTwo>
    <People value="3">
        <Name number="3">
            <FirstName> Simon</FirstName>
        <Name number="3">
            <FirstName> Simon</FirstName>
        <Name number="3">
            <FirstName> Simon</FirstName>
        <Name number="3">
            <FirstName> Simon</FirstName>
        <Had a="little"> lamb</Had>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.1"
    <xsl:output indent="yes" method="xml" version="1.0"/>
    <xsl:param name="filterElement">Header</xsl:param>
    <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:template match="???????">
        <xsl:copy-of select="."/>
    <xsl:template match="????????"/>

Any help that can be provided would be gratefully appreciated.
