ASP.NET 2.0 Treeview Sitemap with multiple top level nodes

Hello Experts,

I have a treeview bound to a sitemap in asp.net 2.0.  Due to the fact that this bound to an XML file it has only one toplevel node, allowing the user to collapse the entire menu.  I would like to have multiple top level nodes so the user can only collapse the menu to a certain level.  I am looking for the cleanest way to accomplish this.  

Thank you,

interstingly I have the same issue,
I beleive that xml can only have 1 root level node and the sitemap links directly onto this root level.
maybe have 2 site maps and 2 treeviews - this does seem like a bad solution though

I have read something about using XPath but don't really know much about this.  Are you familiar with this?

I found the answer, it was pretty simple too.  There is an option in the siteMapDataSource:

ShowStartingNode="false"

This eliminates the top level node from being displayed.
