Having this XML file:

</giftinfo>
<giftinfo gifter="TOOTH FAIRY">

</Recipients>
</giftinfo>
<giftinfo gifter="EASTER BUNNY">
<Recipients>
<kid name="JIMMY EGGHEAD" />
</Recipients>
</giftinfo>
</gifts>

I need to find what is the maximum number of "kid name"s under "giftinfo gifter".
For the example above, I would like to see "3".
Any hints would be appreciated.
