Default Extracting XML from XML

Im having problems extracting certain snippets of XML from a file using XSLT. I have a massive XML file thats multilayed

Example i've mocked up:


The trouble is when i run it It will output the tags and data i want but it also outputs the whole XML (or most of it) without tags... now i think this is something to do with the match and value-of somehow playing up but does anyone know how to fix this or a better way to do it?


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

 <xsl:output method="xml"/>

 <xsl:template match="run_context | application | xml_module | os_description | legal_statement">

   <xsl:element name="{name()}" >
     <xsl:for-each select="@*">
       <xsl:attribute name="{name()}">
         <xsl:value-of select="."/>
     <xsl:apply-templates select="*|text()"/>
