I guess you can since the MSXML library is used by IE(Internet Explorer) and IE is used on the Mac

Microsoft's XML parser only runs on Windows.  Here are the "System Requirements":

Apple includes an XML parser in its Core Foundation Library:

It will run on Mac because MSXML is used by IE. There are going to completely rewrite the parsing code just because there application is running on a different OS that would be crazy

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Question is ==>Can I use Microsoft MSXML 4.0 Dom in mac OS

Answer can be either YES or NO.

As above I said with reference of the links "MSXML 4.0" is not available on Mac OS as following link states System OS Requirement for MSXML 4.0 :
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=3144b72b-b4f2-46da-b4b6-c5d7485f2b42&DisplayLang=en#requirements <====

and this answer given by MAC MVP also states same : http://www.mcse.ms/archive262-2005-5-1607131.html <====
