XML document parsing in classical ASP

Unggg... The bain of my last two days!

I've gotten into the bad habit of coding ASP in VBScript, virtually all the XML examples are in JScript and C++. VBScript really isn't the place to be passing around Objects and either I've missed something (quite possible give MS's atrocious XML docs) or you end up doing nearly as much work as if the XMLDocument object didn't exist...

Oh well, just as well it was just some quick'n'dirty proof of concept code to interface between Tikit (taxonomy system) and Hummingbird's Portal. Time to hand it over to my assistant to code (properly) in Java.

[still need an HTML emailer for my PDA, so I can put links into these posts]
