CComBSTR bstrInnerHTML;
CString result = W2A(bstrInnerHTML);

When I get the response from from an http request, I get in the result:

<html>...<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>...</html>

How do I get rid of html tags and just get the xml string???

get_innerHTML isn't working?  You may have to navigate to the specific element in the XML (I can't tell from what you've posted).

Another possibility is to reparse the string into a DOMDocument and then use standard XML navigation to get to the part you want.

Hope this helps.

thanks Kurt, I've figured it out.  I have to write a little parsing function and painfully parse the string in memory to get rid of hltml tags.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

I'm surprised you can't trim the string before the start and after the end of the XML tags, then feed the string to a DOMDocument to get it parsed automatically.

it is because html tags occurs not only between html block but also between xml block.
