Unhappy Pulling Specific Data from XML

I need to be able to use as2 to search through my XML file and populate dynamic text field with certain data. Here's and example of my xml:

//-------------------- AS2 --------------------
function loadXML(loaded) {

if (loaded && typerank == "1"){

_root.firstperiod = this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue;
_root.typerank= this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[6].firstChild.nodeValue;

ffname1_1_txt.text = _root.firstperiod;
}else {
trace("file not loaded!");
xmlData = new XML();
xmlData.ignoreWhite = true;
xmlData.onLoad = loadXML;
//-------------------- End AS2 --------------------

When I use this my xml doesn't load.

My xml actually looks like this:

//-------------------- XML --------------------
<name>Last, First</name>
//-------------------- End XML --------------------

I'm already using this xml to extrapolate data out of in other areas of the site and it works great. Now I just want to use it more in a different location to look at the "*rank" labels and see if they == 1, 2 or 3 and then fill in dynamic fields with the name, and score data. So I want to search for the highest grade and fill in a dynamic text field, or maybe the second highest grade and pull that data, and the name of the person. How could I do this?
