xpath and processing instructions

Hi XSLT/XPATH gurus,
I am converting an xml file into html. However, I want to list only the objects below that have the processing instructions "<?INSERT OBJECT?>" and filter out all the others. I know how to do that based on attributes or child element but not based on processing instructions.
Anybody ?
<OBJ_ATTR ADDRESS1="1100 Vernon Street">
So how do I formulate the "template select" for this ?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="">
<xsl utput method="html"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<title>New Objects</title>
<h1>New Objects</h1>
<xsl:apply-templates select = "???"/>

May sound like a stupid question from me, but "What is the real use of having a XML structure like this ?"

this link will help you write XSLT for accessingPI, but as you can see, you need to change your xml structure a bit to achieve your task.
I agree. Here's the link:
