Reading XML files by name in C#

Is there a way in C# to read nodes of XML by the node name?  I want to be able to read the following:

http://www.markit.com/news/RCD_ABX_HE_INDEX.xml

I want to extract the <red></red> code for each item and then within the <currentsettlement> I want to get the <factor>.

Hi,

The red code is correct but the factor gives me the red code as well.  I did change the misspelling from your code segment to the correct spelling, i.e., factot => factor.

Thanks

Not sure if this will help, but try this:

XPathDocument xpd   = new XPathDocument( RCD_ABX_HE_INDEX.xml );                                          
XPathNavigator xpn  = xpd.CreateNavigator();
XPathNodeIterator i = xpn.Select("//data/abcds/red");
if ( i.MoveNext() )
  red = i.Current.Value;
i = xpn.Select("//data/abcds/currentsettlement/factor");
if ( i.MoveNext() )
  factor = i.Current.Value;

I think emce might have forgotten to assign the returned XPathNodeIterator to 'i' (the second xpn.Select).
