I am getting some XML in from a web service in asp.net page.

The XML is in a string which I am loading into an xPathDocument.

To begin with I strip out the CDATA section usnig a REPLACE function call.
The resulting string will not work in an xPathDocument (I cannot navigate to anynodes) If however I take the floowing root element out of the string it does! It would seem to have something to do woth the namespaces - does anyone have any ideas??

Thanks for taking the time (I was hoping to only award you 100 for your effort but I could only give the whole lot)
The link you show is using the creatObject (associated with classic asp not asp.net)

Apparently the xPathDocument does not accept namespaces???????? This was why it was failing!
