I have a script that does a live search of an array of data (starting at line 59).

I would like this script to pull its results from the xml file here but I would like the search to be performed on the "search_terms" column and the "result" column to be what is displayed.

the original search file using the array is here: (and I have attached that code.

Can anyone help me change the attached to search and produce results from the xml file as requested?
