Well, that can't be.  LoadXML is used in numerous other places in the code,
that don't fail.  And, in the code I'm looking at, LoadXML just reads in
plain old xml in plain old ASCII non Unicode BSTR and it does not fail.  For
instance, this piece of code runs fine and has no problem.

    Set AgreementReqXml = New MSXML2.DOMDocument
    Set XmlHttp = New MSXML2.XmlHttp
    Set XmlHttpResp = New MSXML2.DOMDocument
    GetPath FpApp.ActiveWeb.RootFolder, ShippingLoc, False
    ShippingLoc = ShippingLoc & "/ups/agreementrequest.xml"
    Set MyDocObject = FpApp.ActivePageWindow.ActiveDocument
    ReqXmlStr = MyDocObject.DocumentHTML
    If Not AgreementReqXml.loadXML(ReqXmlStr) Then
        MsgBox "Unable to create request file", vbOKOnly + vbCritical,
"Shipping Error!"
        AgreementRequest = False
    End If

I didn't write the code, I'm trying to make sense out of it...but it surely
does not fail and that statement can't be right.
