Well, i'm using the open-source project Sarissa, that provides a
cross-browser javascript implementation
(, so i think they take care of it. For
the XMLHTTPRequest they say

For users under IE, an XMLHTTP object is returned using the most
recent MSXML ProgID found in the client system. So, supposing that the
user has MSXML4.0 installed, the above is equal to:

var xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP.4.0");

so for a DomDocument it's probably similar.

Thanks for your remark.
