Blog2007 ≫ xml namespaces in jquery

Dang I'm struggling with some work code that I really ought not be thinking about on a Friday night...

How do I access xml tags in other namespaces using jquery1? If I have some xml like:


I can easily get any of the elements with something like


but how do I get them if the elements are namespaced, like


I'm simplifying a bit there, but I can't find any info online about how to get this out again; I can't access my elements with


because that means a stuff tag of type thing...

What am I missing? Do you know what I'm on about? Do you care?

jquery1 is a brilliant javascript library that I use for everything at work (though I haven't really brought this site up to date with much of it), but I'm struggling to use it to process some gecoded rss like the geo:lat and geo:long in here...

I could really do with knowing this for a fairly funky work project, but equally I could do with not thinking about this on a Friday night...

UPDATE: Just ignore the namespace and get it like this:

$('lat, long', xml ).each( function () {
 $('#debug').append( '<h2>' + this.nodeName + '=' + $(this).text() + '</h2>' );
} );

javascript: Programming language of the web, mostly how I make my living.
