Probably you haven't set the "SelectionLanguage" property of the DOM Document as "XPath" rather than "XSLPattern" or whatever it is that MSXML uses as the default. The "XSLPattern" language doesn't support as much as XPath and, of course, isn't standard. Assuming that history[curDim].oDoc returns a DOM Document object, use something like: history[curDim].oDoc.setProperty("SelectionLanguage", "XPath"); history[curDim].oDoc.selectNodes("//Message[position() = 1]"); BTW, you can use just  instead of [position() = 1] if you like -- it means exactly the same thing.
