Try this:

/bank/name[text()='Dresdner Bank AG']

Not sure why the original query doesn't work(probably something to do 
with the string function not correctly filtering off the empty results) 
, but I find that returning whole nodes like in this case 'name' works 
allot better in the long run. The way xindice api is setup you still 
need parse the string anyways then extract the text.
