In my ASP page, I  have variable that has an XML response payload inside.  How would i best parse this field?  to get the node values from the string?  
it is IIS 6.0 so i have some options.  but the ASP is classic ASP and i dont have time rewrite the ASP applications.

when i do this:
 response.Write("FULL XML: " & wsResponse)

i get this:

FULL XML: 3Severe errors occurred, check message.No active truck visit found for Gate Visit Nbr 741.SEVERE<argo:gate-response xmlns:argo="http://www.test.com/argo" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.test.com/argo GateWebserviceResponse.xsd"><submit-transaction-response /></argo:gate-response><update-status> <document-update status="ACCEPTED" ></document-update > <entity-updates amount-successful="0" amount-failed="1" amount-not-found="0"> <logical-entity-update logical-entity="n/a" id="unknown" status="FAILED" >No active truck visit found for Gate Visit Nbr 741.</logical-entity-update> </entity-updates> </update-status>

You will basically need to create a DOMDocument object, load your XML and then either iterate over the nodes, or use XPath to retrieve individual nodes.

Alternatively, if you are only displaying it, then you could just apply and XSL transform to render the data as HTML.
