I have never worked with XML before with .net.  I set a small xml file to a variable called strIPInfo that looks like.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>




                                                <query_status_description>Query successfully performed.</query_status_description>


<city>Saint Louis</city>
<isp>My ISP</isp>


How can I read that variable and get info like "isp", "ip", "city" ect?  Can i do this all with out haveing to write the xml to a file?
