    MSXML Help


    Hi,

    We are having a problem with a CD we have produced for a customer. It has been programmed using MSXML to access XML files from the CD and also to create XML files in memory as a result of various search criteria.

    The problem we have is that the CD should work with Unix but, because of the MSXML code which we have used, it doesn't.

    Is there any way to get this to run on Unix without modifying the code too much? if not, what is the best way to change the code to allow it to work on both platforms.

    Any help is very much appreciated as time is very tight.

    Thanks,

    Steve W

    when you say msxml code do you just mean stylesheets or have you programmed something in VisualBasic or Javascript?

    The page is coded using HTML and a large amount of javascript which works with the MSXML to allow very complex searches.

    It creates temporary XML files in memory and then queries them and displays the results in a table.

    Thanks for your help,

    Are you using MSXML to load and process DOM objects with javascript? If so, that's an Internet Explorer-only technology. Heck, MSXML is Windows-only, so I'm not sure how you intend for it to run on unix.

    Here's some stuff about using javascript to load xml cross-browser:
