Default Parsing XML Data from a remote site

Can someone guide me at how I find out how to parse XML information generated from a remote web site (a shipping company quote) into my site using either classic ASP or ASP.NET.

The code generated is as follows.

  <?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <ABF>
  <CODFEE />

Each time I try to read the information using Microsoft.XMLDOM and browing through the xmlDoc.documentElement.childNode I generate a security error, which, although this can be over-ridden by adjusting my browser security controls, will not be acceptable for general users.

I tried a different tack and saved the information as a file and tried to read the data into a datagrid and/or datalist bound to an XMLDatasource in Visual Studio 2005 but the file would not display. (I have experienced no problems with other XML files)

As a complete beginner with Visual Studio I don't know where to go now or what questions to ask.

I can find plenty of tutorials for parsing RSS feeds etc but nothing that seems to help with this problem

Can anyone help?
