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 -->
