Parsing XML into SQL

Hello,

I have the following XML file which has data in the attributes and within the tags I trying to figure out the best approach to get this data into SQL. I am able to pull out the attributes but what happens when I pull out the data with in the tags it is all concatenated together as one value.

What would be the best approach to this multiple passes?

Well, it would have been nice, if you would include your solutions so far.. E.g.
DECLARE @Xml XML; 
SET @Xml = N'
<Package>
	<InvestmentVehicle _Id="F00000Q9RW">
		<Name LanguageId="0L00000122">Need Data From Here</Name>
		<LegalName LanguageId="0L00000122">Need Data From Here</LegalName>
		<FundServList>
			<FundServId CurrencyId="CU$$$$$USD">PMO2406</FundServId>
		</FundServList>
	</InvestmentVehicle>
	<InvestmentVehicle _Id="F00000LXW6">
		<Name LanguageId="0L00000138">CAN Revenu (M) 100/100</Name>
		<Name LanguageId="0L00000122">CAN Income (M) 100/100</Name>
		<LegalName LanguageId="0L00000138">CAN Revenu (M) 100/100</LegalName>

Thank you wasn't looking for a full solution, I was getting frustrated in trying to go the data out. I ended up getting the right number of records but the columns were not updating with new values


DECLARE @XML AS XML, @hDoc AS INT, @SQL NVARCHAR (MAX)

SELECT @XML = XmlCol FROM T

EXEC sp_xml_preparedocument @hDoc OUTPUT, @XML

SELECT _Id--, Name--, LegalName, CurrencyId
, FundServId
FROM OPENXML(@hDoc, 'Package/InvestmentVehicle/FundServList/FundServId')
WITH
(
_Id [varchar](50) '../../@_Id',
Name [varchar](100) '../../Name',
LegalName [varchar](100) '../../LegalName',
CurrencyId [varchar](100) '@CurrencyId',
FundServId [varchar](100) '../FundServId'

)

EXEC sp_xml_removedocument @hDoc
