This error should occur with any conforming XML processor. It is quite
likely that the error is caused by a control character in the low ASCII
range. The only way to avoid the problem is to clean up the XML on the
way in, before it is processed by MSXML. And unfortunately I am not
aware of a way to do this without writing code to pipe the input stream
through a scrubber before passing it to MSXML. Julia will know if there
are any code samples existing today (I doubt it).
