O.P. [?] XMLDom loading files with <?xml ?> data...
Note: this question relates to using the XMLDom ActiveXObject with an HTML Application, although this effect also occurs with standalone JScript, and I assume with Plus! scripting as well.

I'm trying to load an XML file that looks something like this:
XML code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<app version="1.0">

Trouble is, I can only seem to read the first line (<?xml ... ?>).  Using something like:
Javascript code:
XMLDom.selectSingleNode("//app/" + Node + "/").nodeValue

...where Node is any of the child nodes (name, coder etc.), always seems to return:
version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"
Even using //app[@version="1.0"]/ has no effect.  However, the following code works (by returning the app node).
Javascript code:
XMLDom.selectSingleNode("//").nextSibling // but can also select //app/ or anything else

As long as the select function receives something with a // at the start, it fetches the <?xml ?> section.  Why is this?  :S
