How I can get number value of XML node? For example, my node:

 <name>Some profile name</name>

I don't know how retrieve id as number. The most I can is to do something
like this:

xmerl_xpath:string("string(/profile/id/text())", P)

which returns {xmlObj,string,"1"} and convert value of this record to
integer with list_to_integer/1

Is there any right way to get {xmlObject, number, 1} from this node?

Thank you
