How to access client side XML data island from server side?

I have an aspx which has some client side script.

The client side part of the page also features an xml data island [<xml
id='blah'....]

What I want to be able to do is to get at the data island from the server
side part of the page.

I've managed to do it with a simple text field using
client side
<input type="hidden" runat="server" id="funcParam" NAME="funcParam">
server side
Protected WithEvents funcParam As System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlInputHidden

then I can just access the control easily

How can I do the same with the xml data island?
What do I have to class the xml data island as?

If you don't need to access the data island from the client script then you
can use the XML Control. This allows you to pass in a stylesheet and other
values from the server.

Alternately:
You could copy the XML from the dataisland to a hidden text box to pass
it back to the server
