jQuery - how to parse XML retreived from AJAX request

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
I've got the following jQuery code that performs an AJAX request...

        url: "Services/PageMetaData.aspx?id=" + this.windowID,
        dataType: "xml",
        success: function (data) {

I have already verified that the AJAX request is successfully returning the following XML...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16" standalone="yes"?>
<!--Created at: 2010-06-19 05:56:44-->
    <pageTitle>Testing Page</pageTitle>

My question is, how do I use jQuery to parse the data out of the XML?
