Extracting values from an XML file

Hello People,

I have an xml file from which I need to extract the values of the parameters using UNIX shell commands.

Ex : Input is like :
<Name>Roger</Name>
or
<Address>MI</Address>

I need the output as just :
Roger
or
MI
with the tags removed.

Please help.

Code:
echo '<Name>Roger</Name>' | sed 's/.*>\(.*\)<.*/\1/'

or:

Code:
echo '<Name>Roger</Name>' | awk -F"<|>" '{print $3}'
