in there too.

I am glad the file is useful. I generated a version without the hack for
IE, and went to the page: and downloaded
MSXML Parser 3.0 Service Pack 1 Release, and installed. Rebooted. Tried to
view the UCD.xml file. Got the message: "

 "The XML page cannot be displayed

 Cannot view XML input using XSL style
 sheet. Please correct the error and then
 click the Refresh button, or try again

 Invalid unicode character value for this
 platform. Line 32080, Position 14


The offending line in the file appears to be:

 gc='Cf' lb='CM' bc='BN'

I then tried my usual remedy: Bow in precisely the correct direction (359°
16' 32" N*), and chant: "O great and mighty µsoft, take pity upon this, the
least of thy servants, and permit his humble computing device to fulfill
its annointed function." To my great disappointment, my pleas went
unheaded. Does my incantation require further refinement?
