I have the following code below.  I can load the XML no problems but what i want to do is filter the xml data so it will select the node with the id=1 and put title,teaser in separate variables.  


<!-Start xml Code -->

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

 <stories>

   <story id='1'>

     <title>MyTitle 1</title>

     <teaser>test</teaser>

	 <readmore>test</readmore>

   </story>

   

    <story id='2'>

     <title>MyTitle 2</title>

     <teaser>test</teaser>

	 <readmore>test</readmore>

   </story>

   

   

    <story id='3'>

     <title>MyTitle 3</title>

     <teaser>test</teaser>

	 <readmore>test</readmore>

   </story>

   

 </stories>

<!--End XML code --->
 
 

<!-- Start jQuery Code -->

  <script type="application/javascript">

	 <!-- Avoid W3C validator on heavy javascript 

        $(document).ready(function() {

             $.ajax({

                 type: "GET",

                 url: "xml/myxml.xml",

                 dataType: "xml",

                 success: function(xml) {

                    var returnRecord = $(xml).filter("[ id = 1 ]");

					var str=jQuery.param(returnRecord);

   

                 }

             }); //close $.ajax(

         }); //

 	 //-->

    </script>

<!-- End jQuery Code -->
