I'm trying to select nodes in an xml data island on the client side. I have come across examples, even in MSDN, of using <name of a data island>.XMLDocument. For example:
var oNode = oMetaData.XMLDocument.selectSingleNode("METADATA/ABSTRACT");

where oMetaData is the name of an xml data island.

This doesn't seem to work for me. When I debug the JavaScript, I find that XMLDocument is undefined. (The data island itself is defined and oMetaData.InnerXml is defined.) Is XMLDocument deprecated Is there a new way (or better way) to accomplish this I'm under the gun to get this working quickly! Please help!

Additional information:

- I'm using XHTML 1.1 Transitional
- I am not trying to bind the data in the data island to controls, I need to select nodes within the xml data (using XPath perhaps) and work with this data in JavaScript.

Thanks in advance!
