Another trick is to replace the ":" in the namespaces with "-" so that you
somehow preserve the namespace, you need to know which namespaces you will
be dealing with for example, if dealing with an ATOM feed you know that
there will be atom:tag inside your xml, you can do a simple

    replace "atom:" with "atom-" in tXML

and refer to your tags with the "atom-" prefix. It is a hack but it is your
only option.
