XML parsing error 'x://shipto/name' has an invalid qualified name.

I am trying to parse an XML and I am stuck.  The XML has a namespace which is making this more difficult.  

I have attached the code, it is blowing up on the line:

            objShipTo.strSTContact = root.SelectSingleNode("x://shipto/name", nsmgr).InnerText.ToString();

I have attached the XML as well.

Thanks for your help.

private bool FillShipTo(XmlDocument xmlDoc)
    {
        try
        {
            objShipTo = new InterfaceShipTo();

            XmlElement root = xmlDoc.DocumentElement;
            XmlNamespaceManager nsmgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(xmlDoc.NameTable);
            nsmgr.AddNamespace("x", root.NamespaceURI); // x is our temp alias

            objShipTo.strSTContact = root.SelectSingleNode("x://shipto/name", nsmgr).InnerText.ToString();

            return true;
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            return false;
        }
    }

"x://shipto/name" should be "x:/shipto/name".  If that gives you an, you can try it the other way, "x://shipto//name", but normally you specify a website the first way I wrote, but drives in C# may be different and you have to use // to actually display a /.

Unless Mono is screwed up, it actually needs to be "//x:shipto/x:name".

Thanks for the help, i tried the x: in front of each node, and I got this error

'x://shipto/x:name' has an invalid qualified name.
