You have to check the parseError object that hangs off the xml document
object to see if load failed or not (it is packaged this way because the
MSXML DOM also supports "async" loading.

loadXML() takes a BSTR which by definition is a UCS-2 (or UTF-16) format.
If you have a JScript string then you have a UTF-16 string and it should
work - so just chopping off the xml declaration is probably all that you
have to do in this case.

Thanks - useful article. I see I may have to find some way of accessing
SAFEARRAYs from server-side JScript - either that or establish that it
is in fact safe to simply knock out the xml declaration before the
loadXML() call!

On the absence-of-error-message point, the article above suggests (but,
I agree, does not *specify*) that this problem might generate a

	Switch from current encoding to specified encoding not supported.

error message. In fact the attached query program generates no error
messages at all, as can be seen -

D:\xmlSchema>tableXpath table_0.xml "Francis Norton"

D:\xmlSchema>tableXpath table.xml "Francis Norton"


Thanks -

Francis Norton.

why not?
