Default help in selecting elements

I have an xml that is a tree of various elements that repeat within each other i.e.

... and so on

what I want to do is just get all the rss elements and their children, but there xpaths are different, and have not been able to find a generic one that will just give me all the RSS elements + the children regards of where it is in the xml. any one have any ideas

trying something like this, which does not work

<xsl:template match="/">

<xsl:template match="RSS/RF">
           <xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(.)"/>
           <xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()"/>

thanks for any help you might be able to offer.
