Hi,
Im pretty new to XML and was just wondering what is the best way (s) to:
(1) Select a specific branch/node given a particular XML document and output it
(2) Verify that 2 branches from 2 xml documents have the same meaning.

Any examples of these would be great, im researching XML DOM and X Path stuff but sample code is always the best way for me to pick up on the new concepts.
I have to build these to functions into a HTML interface.
Any advice/examples/feedback would be much appreciated.
many thanks
Ciaran

There's good stuff, atleast I think, about DOM here.
