XML/XPath Question

Hi experts,

I have a read only XML file (converted from HTML) as follows:

  	<div class="league">
	<table class="matches">
		<tr class="match">
			<td>Man. Utd-Chelsea</td>
		<tr class="match">
		<tr class="match">
	<div class="league">
		  <h1>World Cup 2010</h1>
	<table class="matches">
		<tr class="match">
	<div class="league">
		  <h1>Swedish Superettan</h1>
	<table class="matches">
		<tr class="match">
			<td>IFK Norrkoping-Orgryte IS</td>

Open in new window

I'm trying to add leauges and matches together to a datagrid in VB.Net. I managed to add leagues only or matches only to the datagrid. (by iterating through div or table nodes). What I want is as follows:

Premiership                   Man. Utd-Chelsea
Premiership                   Arsenal-Liverpool
Premiership                   Tottenham-Man.City
World Cup 2010            England-USA
Swedish Superettan     IFK Norrkoping-Orgryte IS

I can get the matches if I iterate through using  /root/table[@class='matches'] or leauges /root/div[@class='leauge'].

How do I get them together?

Many thanks in advance.
