I wrote an ActiveX controller to manipulate the html pages in the browser. I can access the html DOM, but now i wannt to acess the XMLDOM to be able to use Xpath expressions to manipulate the page. So the question: can I access the XMLDOM of the page in the browser like i did it wiht the htmlDOM:

IHTMLDocument2* GetpDoc()
     IOleClientSite *pClientSite = NULL;
     pClientSite = GetClientSite();
     IOleContainer* pDocDisp = NULL;
     IHTMLDocument2* pDoc = NULL;
     pDocDisp->QueryInterface(IID_IHTMLDocument2, (void**)&pDoc);
        return pDoc;
This way i have the pointer to the html document (actually not the DOM, but doesnt matter).

I don't think you can get at this information through an HTMLDocument. You can parse xmldocuments using the MsXML parser.
