Here's a list with problems regarding msxml 1.1.8.

1) Fast mode

Did anyone get msxml 1.8 to work with "-f" set ?
I tried with Sun-JDK 1.1.{2,3} on Linux, Sun-JDK 1.1.5 on Win95 
and latest jview. All fail to parse any XML-document.

With Sun-JDK:
[inim at voyager samples]$ java msxml -f Hamlet.xml
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: NullElementFactory
        at msxml.main(

With jview:
c:\temp\samples> jview msxml -f Hamlet.xml
Error: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: NullElementFactory

2) jview vs. Sun-JDK on win95

Called from commandline, jview fails this way:

> echo %CLASSPATH%
> jview msxml Hamlet.xml
Error: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com/ms/xml/Document:
setLoadExternal(Z)V not found

Strange enough: Sun-JDK 1.1.5 works fine !

Once again clueless,
