you can do it with jquery like so:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
  <html>
  <head>    
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
   $(document).ready(function()
{
  $.ajax({
    type: "GET",
    url: "xml-parsing.xml",  // put here instead, whatever you xml file is called.
    dataType: "xml",
    success: parseXml
  });
});
    
    
    function parseXml(xml)
{
  //find every Tutorial and print the author
  $(xml).find("Player").each(function() {
      var fname = $(this).attr("FirstName");
      var lname = $(this).attr("Lastname");
      console.log("State: " + fname + " Code: " + lname);
    });

  // Output:
  // The Reddest
  // The Hairiest
  // The Tallest
  // The Fattest
}
    
    
    
    
    </script>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

My script above is tested on my local server and worked like a charme. It has been done with javascript. Enjoy!
