XPath Question

Posts: n/a
Assuming the following XML:

<title>Test Poll</title>
<instructions>Please respond to the following poll:</instructions>
<label>What is your choice?</label>
<choice>Choice 1</choice>
<choice>Choice 2</choice>
<choice>Choice 3</choice>

.... I'd like to use XPath to find the "choice" element that has a
particular value, for example "Choice 2."

What is the syntax? I thought it would be something like:

//choices[choice='Choice 2']/choice

.... but that doesn't seem to do the trick. Any ideas?
