Is there anything wrong with this:

<xsl:template match="Para">

<xsl:template match="Menu">
	<span style="color: green"><xsl:apply-templates/></span>

Or you can be more specific in the Menu case by specifying "Para/Menu"
as the match attribute value.

(this assumes you're using HTML as the output format, but the technique
applies the same if it's FO's).
