Very interesting ... I missed that.  They did not mention that at all at the
conference (but, then again, the sessions were only 1 hour 15 minutes each),
but they did emphasize standards compliance.

That's disappointing.  Have you used it enough to determine if we are
at a superset of the standard or a deviation from the standard.

Sorry, but I have already written a few large applications using MSXML. and
it has many "additions" to the standard.

If you look in MSDN you will see there is a little '*' next to all the MS
specific additions in the MSXML interfaces.
