jQuery.parseXML( data )Returns: XMLDocument

Description: Parses a string into an XML document.

jQuery.parseXML uses the native parsing function of the browser to create a valid XML Document. This document can then be passed to jQuery to create a typical jQuery object that can be traversed and manipulated.


Create a jQuery object using an XML string and obtain the value of the title node.
