XML JavaScipt Loop inside a Loop

I have a strip of XML code that is looping inside a loop.

 <Stars> 
  <Star>
      <starNotAddressRecord>2</starNotAddressRecord>
      <starNotName>Not2</starNotName>
      <noRespondents>HF_TRUE</noRespondents>
      <fixedLengthAddresses>HF_FALSE</fixedLengthAddresses>
      <Notscanstar>
        <scanstarSelect>true</scanstarSelect>
        <scanstarIndex>2</scanstarIndex>
      </Notscanstar>
      <members>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>TED</member>
        <member>HF2</member>
        <member>HF1</member>
      </members>
    </Star>
    <Star>
      <starNotAddressRecord>3</starNotAddressRecord>
      <starNotName>Not3</starNotName>
      <noRespondents>HF_TRUE</noRespondents>
      <fixedLengthAddresses>HF_FALSE</fixedLengthAddresses>
      <Notscanstar>
        <scanstarSelect>true</scanstarSelect>
        <scanstarIndex>3</scanstarIndex>
      </Notscanstar>
      <members>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>HF2</member>
        <member>HF1</member>
        <member>JANE</member>
      </members>
    </Star>
    <Star>
      <starNotAddressRecord>4</starNotAddressRecord>
      <starNotName>Not4</starNotName>
      <noRespondents>HF_TRUE</noRespondents>
      <fixedLengthAddresses>HF_FALSE</fixedLengthAddresses>
      <Notscanstar>
        <scanstarSelect>true</scanstarSelect>
        <scanstarIndex>4</scanstarIndex>
      </Notscanstar>

        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>@@@</member>
        <member>HF1</member>
        <member>AMANDA</member>
        <member>HF2</member>
      </members>
    </Star>
  </Stars>

The code works fine up until the members loop. It halts everything...

		
  var x=xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("Stars/Star");
	for (i=0;i<x.length;i++)
	{ 
		
		document.write("<br><b>Scan List Index:</b> ");
		try { document.write(x[i].getElementsByTagName("members/member")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue); } catch(e){}; 
	    

		document.write("<p><hr><p>");		
	
	 }

is it supposed to be executed in a browser?
I doubt all the browsers support that XPath-like tag serach:
xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("Stars/Star");
