manipulate XML content

Hey guys, I know my questions gonna sound silly, but I really need your help so please bear with it. I have just recently work as programmer so my general knowledge regarding programming is very low. I am working on a project right now which I have to connect to HttpConnection, run the php and build a XML file, read by XML parser, and then display it in the BlackBerry.


I have completed it all. My problem is I have no idea how to manipulate the content of the XML as I wanted it to be. Example of the XML :















So, I want to display it in the blackberry but in the format of :


Date of Order : 2010-08-02

Booking Id : 1

Customer Name : Anna Lie

Type of Stock : fyx-tir-700-blk

Quantity : 2 units


I'd really appreciate it if anyone can tell me how to do that. So far, I only know how to read the XML document and just convert it to string. Also, is it possible to have null?because I want the last name to be optional. Thank you so much for answering and of course I'll give a lot of kudos.
