    Yahoo Weather RSS Feed - XML Help

    runspot
      I am not terribly saavy with XML parsing and am trying to format a simple RSS feed from Yahoo! Weather.
      The problem I am having is with the 3 namespaces: yweather:condition and the two yweather:forecast nodes. I know how to print out all the other parts of the XML but when it comes to the namespaces I don't understand how to access their attributes.

      For the other items in the XML document I am using: xmlfile.rss.channel.item.description.xmltext which is simple enough.

      Can someone please tell me how to access the attributes of the yweather nodes?

      Thanks in advance!


      Here is a short version of the XML below:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
      <rss version="2.0" xmlns:yweather=" http://xml.weather.yahoo.com/ns/rss/1.0" xmlns:geo=" http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#">
      <channel>
      <item>


      <yweather:condition text="Fair" code="34" temp="67" date="Tue, 22 Aug 2006 10:36 am CDT" />
      <yweather:forecast day="Tue" date="22 Aug 2006" low="61" high="79" text="Sunny" code="32" />
      <yweather:forecast day="Wed" date="23 Aug 2006" low="64" high="80" text="Scattered Thunderstorms" code="38" />
      </item>
      </channel>
      </rss>
