The XML data sample below represents a family tree:
      <PERSON id="1" name="name_1">
            <PERSON id="11" name="name_11"></PERSON>
            <PERSON id="12" name="name_12">
                  <PERSON id="121" name="name_121"></PERSON>
            <PERSON id="13" name=“name_13”></PERSON>
      <PERSON id="2"></PERSON>
      <PERSON id="3">
            <PERSON id="31" name=“name_31”></PERSON>
            <PERSON id="32" name=“name_32”></PERSON>
            <PERSON id="32" name=“name_33”></PERSON>
I need help with writing the function GetDescendants(string id), where the input parameter is the id of a node whose descendants we want to return.  The id’s should be returned in an array sorted by generation.  E.g. GetDescendants(“1”) would return [array(“11”, “12”, “121”)].

Any help appreciated. Thanks.
