Sorry about this David. This text was boiler-plate stuff taken from our COM
Tutorial. I'm fairly certain that no ActiveX controls are used in the XML
Tutorial although it probably does use cookies.

I will check out these things for sure and get back to you ( and have the
text amended as necessary ).

I'm hoping this is not the case. Were there actually any parts of the XML
Tutorial you could *not* access through your chosen OS and browser?
