This is one approach using XML:
Make a reference to XML (this code is using v2) and add this code:

Dim xmlReq As MSXML.XMLHTTPRequest
Dim xmlDoc As MSXML.DOMDocument
Dim HTTPRequest As String

Set xmlReq = New MSXML.XMLHTTPRequest
With xmlReq
   .open "POST", HTTPRequest, False
   .setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "text/xml"
   .send vbNullString
   Set xmlDoc = xmlReq.responseXML
End With

So I guess then I simply read the XML file with the ASP page.

If you want to send a XML document to your ASP then change as follows:

Dim xmlHTTP As MSXML.XMLHTTPRequest
Dim xmlReq As MSXML.DOMDocument
Dim xmlResp As MSXML.DOMDocument
Dim HTTPRequest As String

Set xmlReq = New MSXML.DOMDocument
'build your xmlReq here

Set xmlHTTP = New MSXML.XMLHTTPRequest
With xmlHTTP
  .open "POST", HTTPRequest, False
  .setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "text/xml"
  .send xmlReq
  Set xmlResp = xmlHTTP.responseXML
  'Read the xmlResp here
End With
