Title: Clarification on "Burnt by MSXML.DLL"

In a previous message, I wrote:

To clarify, the "Pre-DOM" C++ XML Parser seems to work fine. 

However, this requires that our clients have a particular version of IE installed on their machines.  My company's tech support staff are constantly getting calls about why something doesn't work.  Their problem is they don't have an MSXML.DLL on their system!

The answer is:
"You have to have IE4, SP1 installed."  This seems to upset a lot of our corporate clients, who have chosen Netscape as their browser, and they don't want to have anybody installing newer versions of IE.

Hence, "burnt."

In another project, I'm now using the IE5 DOM and have found it very easy to use, especially with the VC++ 6.0 #import feature of the DLL. My only complaint is that the error messages returned are almost always E_FAIL.
