    Angry Can't access tags directly

    Can somebody please explain to me what's going on here?

    I can load an external .xml sheet no problem. I can trace the entire content of that .xml sheet no problem. I CAN'T seem to directly access the tags. When I try to trace them, I get nothing.

    Here's the code (called from another script. I pass the URL location of the .xml file)
    public function init(target:String)
    			myLoader.load(new URLRequest(target));
    			myLoader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.TEXT;
    			myLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, processXML);
    		public function processXML(e:Event):void 
    			var xml:XMLList = XML(myLoader.data);
    			trace(xml.responseDeclaration); //traces nothing
                            trace(xml) //traces all xml code
    Here is the xml file

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> 
    <assessmentItem xmlns="http://www.imsglobal.org/xsd/imsqti_v2p1" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.imsglobal.org/xsd/imsqti_v2p1 http://www.imsglobal.org/xsd/imsqti_v2p1.xsd" identifier="PDC_PM101_C1_FE1_Q1" title="Question" timeDependent="false" adaptive="false">

                <mapEntry mapKey="A" mappedValue="10" /> 
                <mapEntry mapKey="B" mappedValue="0" />
                <mapEntry mapKey="C" mappedValue="0" />	
                <mapEntry mapKey="D" mappedValue="0" />	
            <p>Which statement is TRUE about the Statement of Work (SOW)?</p>
            <choiceInteraction responseIdentifier="Q1" maxChoices="1" shuffle="true">

                <simpleChoice identifier="B">When the customer and the project team belong to the same business, no SOW is required.</simpleChoice>
                <simpleChoice identifier="C">The SOW is a legal contract.</simpleChoice> 
                <simpleChoice identifier="D">A SOW is sufficient when the project team and the customer are different legal entities.</simpleChoice> 
        <!--<responseProcessing template="explanationTemplate.xml" />--> 
        <!--<modalFeedback outcomeIdentifier="EXPLANATION" identifier="completed" showHide="show">
            <p>The project charter authorizes a project and includes the initial project requirements.</p>
            <p>Reference: <i>A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)</i> Chapter 4, Section 4.1.</p>
        </modalFeedback> -->
    The only thing I can get to work at this point is to access the tags via:

    trace(xml.children()[0].localName()) //traces responseDeclaration
    trace(xml.children().length() //traces 2

    I do NOT want to have to resort to recursive functions as a "work around".
