Default Navigate through nodes

Beginner in reading XML files with VB.

I've got this XML file:
<Name>
  <First>John</First>
  <Surname>McGowan</McGowan>
</Name>

How can I display the content of one of the elements using nodes navigation (without using Getelementbytagname)?

Thanks very much

After setting a refernce to msxml4 you can use selectSingleNode:
Code:
Dim oDom as msxml2.domdocument40
set oDom = new msxml2.domdocument40
oDom.async = false
Dim sXml
sXml = "<Name><First>John</First><Surname>McGowan</McGowan></Name>"
oDom.loadXML sXml 'Use "load" to load a file by name
MsgBox oDom.selectSingleNode("Name/Surname").text, vbInformation, "Surname"
