<old>
<value1>1</value1>
<value2>2</value2>
</old>
<new>
<value1>4</value1>
<value2>3</value2>
</new>
<total>12</total>
</Info>
<Info>
<last name="sean" first name="micheal"/>
<period="10" time="20"/>
<test value="7",test2 value="8",test3 value="9",test4 value="10">
<old>
<value1>8</value1>
<value2>7</value2>
</old>
<new>
<value1>6</value1>
