Is it possible to parse a SOAP response with a jQuery xml handler?

I have the following SOAP response:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsd=""xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:soap="">
        <getPurseBalanceResponse xmlns="">

My question is, can I parse this with jQuery such as below...

var xmlText = $(xml).find("soap:Envelope").

Currently this returns a blank string - what would be the correct jQuery call to get "balance"?


You need to escape special characters (the colon) using double backslashes \\

var xmlText = $(xml).find("soap\\:Envelope")

Here is a working fiddle.
