normally msxml is faster than the java ones.

Were you making use of keys and using msxml4 rather than 3 I seem to
recall there being a documented bug in msxml4's key support: it gets the
right answer but re-evaluates things more than it ought....

usual cause of incompatibility is msxml's default (and annoying)
behaviour of removing white space nodes. xmlspy may call msxml with
white space stripping turned off which would make it more compatible
with other processors (and the spec).
