Power automate and XML email

I am New to power automate and am running into some issues,
I have an email getting sent to a Email address and i am trying to only take from that email what i need.
The issue i am facing is that i have some fields that contain errors but they all have the same Delimitators, i will put an example bellow

This one was simple as the Start and finish are different but these names are not used in the HTML anyware elce.



But these are were i am having issues. what i would like it to show is bellow the 4 lines of HTML from the email 

What the HTML is 

          <Issue type="2025">Payment 70066391 successfully uploaded from a file.</Issue>
          <Issue type="2025">Payment 70066391 successfully uploaded from a file.</Issue>
          <Issue type="104503">Payment successfully validated.</Issue>
          <Issue type="181002">Payment has passed Account Validation.</Issue>


What i would like it to look like 

70066391 successfully uploaded from a file.

70066391 successfully uploaded from a file.

Payment successfully validated.

Payment has passed Account Validation.




now in Power automate i can get one of these to work with the following config but cannot get it to do them all what am i missing 

Initialize variable 

   Name = EmailStep12

           last(split(Variables('EmailBody'),'<Issue type="'))

Initialize Variable 

     Name = EmailStep13Issue



Then Putting the Variable EmailStep13Issue into the Body of the email i send.

Now even if i copy this it only Duplicates the same error being Printed.
Any Help would be awsome.

The issue here is that these errors change,
so i am pulling them from an email that is being sent to me From another business and that they can change from Day to day with what the errors are, /

so it will need to be able to scan the email and pull out the errors.

@Anonymous if it is going to be so dynamic then its really difficult. You will have to establish some format in which you communicate with the earlier team which sends you email

Not applicable

The format will be the same with the starting and the ending of each error have the same HTML tag like I had at the start. 
many ideas ?

@Anonymous did you try the flow which I shared earlier, I showed you how it can be used, once you read received the data from email just pass it to html to text as I have shown.

yes I did have a look at this but how can I select that data only out of an email that has more data in it ?
