I spent half of the day playing with msxml, which means I tried to 
get it running on Linux with Java SDK 1.1.3. Here some points I 

1) Case folding

The filenames in the msxml.tar.gz are all folded to lowercase. This 
might not matter with DOS filesystems, Unix is a bit harsher here.
One has to rebuild all *.class files.

2) Makefile

Rebuilding the *.class files from source is not easy (haven't managed 
yet) because of various cross-dependencies. Is it possible for you to 
provide a Unix style Makefile, or give me a pointer to docs on how to 
read your MS specific Makefile ?

3) Missing imports

These imports are hidden in the source. Surely I could copy them from 
IE4's Java files, but I'd be nice if msxml was self-contained.

import com.ms.com.*;
import com.ms.com.IUnknown;
import com.ms.com.Variant;
import com.ms.osp.*;
import netscape.javascript.JSObject;

Has anyone successfully run msxml on non-windows platforms ? Is this 
at least intended ?
