Actually what I reported is 100% true for MSXML3. 

MSXML4 just crashes when any of the lines marked with <!--Err-> are
present in the provided source. I have noted this consistent crashing
behaviour of MSXML4 on run-time errors in many other cases.

I confirm once again that using the sources provided in my first
message the problem is 100% reproducible with Saxon 6.5. Anybody can
try and reproduce it.

Therefore, I'd greatly appreciate if both the crashing behaviour of
MSXML4 and the non-conformant treatment of RTFs by Saxon 6.5 be fixed
in their next versions.
