You could try
(I apologize if line breaks appear; should be all one URL) and probably
get a better answer.

Some things to note -- it is not technically valid in XML to have a tag
with the name "XML", although IE is lax on this.  Another thing to note
is that the XML DOM and the DHTML DOM are not the same DOM; they are two
different W3C specs.  You are probably looking for something like
getElementByName or getElementById("source").innerHTML, which is also
valid in Netscape 6 now.
