      <FirstName>Tanmay</FirstName>
      <LastName>Patil</LastName>
      <ContactNo>1234567890</ContactNo>

<html>
   <script>
      function loadXMLDoc(filename) {
         if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
            xhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
         } else // code for IE5 and IE6 {
            xhttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
         }
         xhttp.open("GET",filename,false);
         xhttp.send();
         return xhttp.responseXML;
      }
   </script>
   <body>
      <script>
         xmlDoc = loadXMLDoc("/dom/node.xml");
         x = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName('LastName');
         document.write("Local name: " + x.item(0).localName);
      </script>
   </body>
</html>
