I am trying to find this in some atom feeds(similiar to rss feeds):


however it doesnt seem to be in the same spot always so how do i use xml methods to find it?
 Assume I have myXmlDoc object already.

    Hi joshuadavidlee,

    you could look into the XmlNamespaceManager, it has some methods like LookupNamespace to get the namespace in a specific prefix, i didn't get it to work right here yet

    Take a look at and in this file at the line with:

    xmlns:atom="" xmlns:xs=""

    This is the latest version I know about, but I'm not sure.
