Re: Bad News on IE6 XML Support

Sorry, this one is just ludicrous.  Notepad isn't claiming
to be parsing XML.  It's not at all like having the IE6 XML
parser default to believing in "XML" that clearly is broken;
it's not creating/perpetuating an interop problem.

Apples compare best against other apples, not oranges.

Should notepad.exe also alert users to anything that might fail in
Oracle or MSXML3?  When someone loads the invalid file in MSXML3, it
bombs -- does the user say "Notepad let me parse that file!  Who is
right, Microsoft or Microsoft?!?"
