No that's not it. The file that is being loaded by document() is a static
XML file. There is no ASP to execute. In fact, I'd almost prefer it to
retrieve the file from the local disk and not via HTTP for speed and
security reasons.

I tracked down a similar error from The MSDN Knowledge base article :
PRB: Load Method Fails When Loading XML File Over HTTP
which gives a hint that the cause comes from the need for ServerXMLHTTP. I
tried adding the setting to my FreeThreadedDomDocument suggested by the
article. Unfortunately its still busted.

I've also tried loading "/component/FlasDataNav.xml" but i can't seem to
load that either. (my XML and XSL files both have uri bases at adam/config)
