   Any difference in the way IE5/5.5 and IE6 looks at XMLHTTP objects?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


We  retrieve the XML document generated using an ASP page by using the XMLHTTP object. We set the MIME type in the ASP page using the ASP method Response.ContentType  to "text/xml".  Using this we create appropriate XML document for the front end.  This is working very well in the IE 5 and 5.5 versions. 
This is not working in IE6. The XML documents are getting generated  by the ASP but are not transferred to the front end. The XMLHTTP object on the
client machine throws no errors and the the responseXML.xml property is completely empty.
What version of MSXML is installed with IE6? Are there any known issues with the IE6 XML parser? Has it's tolerance of the structure of XML documents been altered, so that something that would be fine with the IE5 XML parser is seen as bad from the IE6 ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, 
Thank you very much in advance.
with best regards
