If an xml has a title tag, jquery ignores it while navigating through it.

var val = '<values><title>some title value</title><rightscode>G</rightscode><rights>Rights value</rights></values>';

//val is an example else its a valid xml.

$.each($(val).children(), function(){

alert('ret: ' + $(this).text() + ' node: ' + this.tagName );


Everything get's printed well except title tag. No matter where title tag exists in the xml.

parses html using the browser's html parser. jQuery cannot determine that the string you gave is xml. If you parse a string with an xml parser you can pass that to
and jQuery can process it.
