O.P. [?] Loading an invalid XML file
OK, I'm working on this script that gathers data from a website, but the page's source cannot be loaded into the XMLDOM ActiveX. I currently have a hard-coded method that makes the source XML-valid, but that's not dynamic enough. I'm trying to get the <title> node of the page. Any ideas on a more dynamic method?

Well, if you want just the content of the the <title> tode, perhaps String.indexOf() method together with String.substring() method is enough :)

Another alternative is to use a regular expression.
code:
/<\s*title\b[^>]*>([\s\S]*?)<\/\s*title\s*>/i.exec(oString);
var textInTitleNode = RegExp.$1;

What's the URL of the XML you're trying to read? Maybe there is a solution to make XMLDOM parse it.

Well, I've done what Minjul suggested. The regexp thingy doesn't work (returns an empty string). It's still a bit hard-coded, but that doesn't matter.
