XML in Mozilla Script

XML Extras

The usage of XML is everywhere. The usage of XML inside the browser has been around for a while but not until lately has it been possible to get this to work in a satisfactory way in more than one browser. A while back Mozilla added support for creating MS compatible XML classes scriptable from JavaScript.

This script creates a common interface for Mozilla and IE and also extends the Mozilla classes a little to make them behave even more like the Microsoft interfaces.

Check the demo to see it in action.

I just found your weblog. It's pretty awesome. Keep up the good work.

Maybe someone can help me here: the demo on the XMLExtras site that you point to doesn't work with my installation of Mozilla, 0.9.9 with SVG, MathML. I think it may have something to do with the fact that Java doesn't work with this installation. I've repeatedly downloaded and installed the JRE but I can't get Mozilla to find or connect to it.

Can you point me toward some help on this; I keep thinking there must be something obvious that I'm not seeing or doing but I am not seeing it or doing it.

Thanks for your help. ...edN

ed, there's a pref to force mozilla to search for the Java JRE plugin. add this to your prefs.js file:

user_pref("plugin.do_JRE_Plugin_Scan", true);
