I'm Using Visual Studio 2005, FrameWork 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0

I have a Web page with a TreeView control, which is bound to filename StaffMenu.xml. Here is StaffMenu.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<Staff>
    <Menu name="Smith, Betty" url=""/>
    <Menu name="White, Gary" url=""/>
    <Menu name="Johnson, William" url=""/>
 </Staff>

Here is the TreView:

<asp:TreeView
        ID="TreeView1"
        runat="server"
        DataSourceID="XmlDataSource3" >
        <DataBindings>
            <asp:TreeNodeBinding
                DataMember="Menu"
                TextField="name"
                NavigateUrlField="url" />
        </DataBindings>
     </asp:TreeView>

Here is the binding:

<asp:XmlDataSource ID="XmlDataSource3" runat="server"  
    DataFile="~/App_Data/StaffMenu.xml" >
</asp:XmlDataSource>

I don't wan't the root node ("Staff") visible in the menu. The XML needs a root element, so I can't omit it. Can it be hidden somehow when TreeView displays the menu on the Web page, so the user only sees the three names?

<asp:XmlDataSource ID="XmlDataSource1" runat="server" XPath="/Staff/*"></asp:XmlDataSource>

The XPath expression filtes out the top root node and displays the rest of the nodes.
