If I do:    put revXMLChildNames(pTree, "Country_List", return,
"Country", true) into tCountries

Then I get the list with brackets but no creative use of any permutation of

repeat for each line theCountry in tCountries

        put revXMLNodeContents(pTree, "Country_List/" & theCountry) &
return after tListOfCountries

    end repeat

Will give me any contents.

Please help
