Hi Ben, 

At the following address
you will found what XML support has been added to NS6.
I ve tried some XML code in IE5.5 and NS6 and 
both "seems" to parse the XML (does NS6 really parse
XML or it just understand XML? just wondering...).

Whatever, IE5.5 is able to use XSL stylesheets and not
NS6, but in the other hand, NS6 is able for exemple to
show the xlink:title and not IE5.5.
Does that mean that XLink is better implemented in NS6
than in IE5.5? I don't really know but I will continue
trying with both looking for their potential.

thanks for your help
