as devic said it will not work on mac
since activeX is a windows componenet.

you will have to go around and write application in C++/Java etc that
does it for you.

if you use IE under mac try to use XMLDataIslands if its good enougth for your purposes.

Hope it will help you

I think I will be going for the java aproach. Who can point me to a good sample source and instructions on how to compile the xml applet.
That will be where my 500 points go.
