Just use xsl:if or xsl:choose with an XPath expression to the
element in question.

<xsl:template match="/">
      <xsl:when test="//nameid">Yeah - the document contains a nameid</xsl:when>
      <xsl:otherwise>Sorry, no nameid found</xsl:otherwise>

(Directly typed into my mailer - no warranty for typos)

XSLT questions are better posted to xsl-list,
