	Please ignore my previous plea for advice in a letter directed to Chris
Maden. I'll download the 2.0 SDK tonight and give 'er a whirl. Is there
any public documentation on the error messages that MSXML gives out?
Simon St.Laurent sent me some the other night, and they were a little. .

	Here's the copy of the error message he sent me:

Error: null(24,9)
Context:  - <null>
com.ms.xml.ParseException: Expected: Doctype
        at com.ms.xml.Parser.error(Parser.java:110)
        at com.ms.xml.Parser.parseToken(Parser.java:583)
        at com.ms.xml.Parser.parseKeyword(Parser.java:599)
        at com.ms.xml.Parser.tryDocTypeDecl(Parser.java:748)
        at com.ms.xml.Parser.parseProlog(Parser.java:676)
        at com.ms.xml.Parser.parseDocument(Parser.java:642)
        at com.ms.xml.Parser.parse(Parser.java:58)
        at com.ms.xml.Document.load(Document.java:183)
        at msxml.main(msxml.java:48)

	Can you explain to me what that error represents, in terms of what each
field means? It's obviously sorted in a rational fashion, but I'm not
very good at guesswork. Any help you could proffer would be very much
appreciated, even if it's just pointing me to some more narrative-style
documentation (if any exists).
