Hi Scott,

Confidence is gained from experience. I have confidence in MSXML because I 
have used it successfully in dozens of my scripts. I have not heard a single 
complaint from any of my clients that have it installed. If you discount 
software just because it is from Microsoft, you will miss out on some good, 
time-saving, production tools. Any big software company is going to have 
some junk (Apple and Adobe included), but I don't like to "throw out the 
baby with the bath water," as they say.
