parsing using Xerces

hi,
i need ur help regarding Xerces parser.
i have an XML file given below:
<selection>
<ele id="1">C:\My Documents\abc.jpg</ele>
<ele id="1">C:\My Documents\abc.jpg</ele>
<data id="1">C:\My Documents\dat1.txt</data>
<data id="2">C:\My Documents\dat2.txt</data>
</selection>

now using a HTML form, the user selects "abc.jpg" and "dat1.txt"
now i want to modify this XML file so that a new XML file is generated
that contains only these two files that the user has selected.
in one of the forums here, someone suggested to me to use Xerces for parsing. i am really finding it difficult to proceed. can u give me some sort of pseudo-code (in Xerces) that will help me to get started.
i tried searching the web but was futile. thanks in advance
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
