Hi Experts,
I am using C# 2.0 and I have below xml format (it is just a sample) and got loaded in  XPathDocument xmlData;

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<WorldwideSites>Worldwide sites</WorldwideSites>
<region code="global" title="Global">
<site defaultLanguage="en" id="tcm:0-233-1" url="/english" countryCode="" title="" order="1">
<language code="en" pubId="tcm:0-233-1" countrylang="en-GB">English</language>
<region code="NSAM" title="North &amp; South America">
<site defaultLanguage="es" id="tcm:0-520-1" url="/ar/spanish" countryCode="AR" title="Argentina">
<language code="es" pubId="tcm:0-520-1" countrylang="es-AR" >Español</language>
<language code="en" pubId="tcm:0-447-1" countrylang="en-AR" >English</language>
<region code="EU" title="Europe">
<site defaultLanguage="de" id="tcm:0-336-1" url="/at/german" countryCode="AT" title="Austria">
<language code="de" pubId="tcm:0-336-1" countrylang="de-AT" >Deutsch</language>
<language code="en" pubId="tcm:0-337-1" countrylang="en-AT" >English</language>

Now I want to create a C# 2.0 function which will take this XML as input and will return back a multidimensional array or arraylist

ArrayList xmldata = new ArrayList();
xmldata[0][0] will be ["233"]["en-GB"] //a middle part of pubId attribute
xmldata[1][1] will be ["520"]["es-AR"] //attribute value of countrylang
and so on

Or suggest the best approach

Please suggest!!
