I want to extrapolate the values within the tags with xquery but the namespace issue and nil="true" stuff has been a battle.  What I've posted as the code obviously doesn't work-- please review and correct.

DECLARE @applog_msg xml;
SET @applog_msg = '
<s:Envelope xmlns:s="">
    <Action s:mustUnderstand="1" xmlns=""></Action>
    <LogException xmlns="">
      <exceptionLog xmlns:d4p1="" xmlns:i="">
        <d4p1:ServiceDescription i:nil="true" />

    T.c.value('d4p1:ServiceDescription[1] i:nil="true" />') as ServiceDescription,
    T.c.value('d4p1:ServiceDomainName[1]', 'varchar(100)') as ServiceDomainName,
    T.c.value('d4p1:Type[1]', 'varchar(10)') as [Type]
     FROM @applog_msg.nodes('LogException/exceptionLog') as T(c);
