Had to look at the data first in another program (used a browse and saved to csv), and guessed that I want to start with the child level of "classification" to be able to parse further.

That surprisingly worked! Then it took a lot of playing to get it going. Clearly I need some more practice with XML!!

I took a different approach to this challenge as I have been dealing with JSON and XML a lot lately in new data sources.

I first did an investigation of the data to figure out what I was looking for and find the best way to tease out that information.

My second step was to use the information I learned to create my final solution.
