in C# and PHP, we can parse xml data easily by server side coding, but how we can parse xml with client side? java script or jquery is the best option?
I'll start with "when you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail."
yes you can read xml using jquery easily. You will have to use DOM parser and XMLHttpRequest to do that. You may refer this reference which I found to read xml using jquery and you can make your first sample easily.
I hope this help you. If you need small sample, let me know nd I would be happy to give you small sample with code which you can use.
