I've used

return selectNodes("<your XPattern>")

from a JScript extension function before. Note that the functionality
between MSXML3 September and MSXML3 gold changed here. The default language
changed from XPattern to XPath and since using Namespaces with XPath in an
extension function isn't possible (due to the XML Document being read only)
it may leave you in the situation of using the September MSXML3 in
