Find price in string

<div class="product-price"><span class="price"><strike>349,00&nbsp;</strike></span>49,00&nbsp;<span class="currency">DKK</span></div>

How does I find 49,00 ?
I can´t change the DOM, so I need to find it due jQuery.

var price = $('.product-price span.price')[0].nextSibling.nodeValue.trim();

What the above is doing.
1. find the span.price element inside the element with class product-price.
2. [0] means return the first JavaScript node found (this is now a JavaScript node not a jQuery object)
3. This means we can now use the JavaScript functions on the node. nextSibling will find the text node immediately after the price <span>
4. .nodeValue returns the value of the string
5. Finally we trim the value to get rid of trailing and following white space characters.

@Julian, that's odd.
This fiddle shows I get 49,00.

When you dump this with

Gives the following

There is an empty text node linked to the original <div> that increases the index of the target node which is the third (index 2) element.

Here is a link to working sample. Use F12 to view the results

aha. that's because I used the HTML as provided by the OP. yours has indentation and line-breaks hence the additional text node.
Julian HansenCommented:
Ok but you cannot rely on a solution that requires the formatting of the html to be laid out in a certain way. One space in that line i.e

<div class="product-price"> <span class="price"><strike>349,00&nbsp;</strike></span>49,00&nbsp;<span class="currency">DKK</span></div>
