Re: With ie9 I get: XMLParserImplIE6 Could not find appropriate version of DOMDocument ?

IE 8 and IE 9 are using the IE6 implementation of XMLParserImpl. For some reasons this implementation fails to create a document using:

private static native JavaScriptObject selectDOMDocumentVersion() /*-{
 try { return new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument"); } catch (e) { }
 try { return new ActiveXObject("MSXML.DOMDocument"); } catch (e) { }
 try { return new ActiveXObject("MSXML3.DOMDocument"); } catch (e) { }
 try { return new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XmlDom"); } catch (e) { }
 try { return new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.DOMDocument"); } catch (e) { }

 throw new Error("XMLParserImplIE6.createDocumentImpl: Could not find appropriate version of DOMDocument.");

Maybe the IE9 user that produced the exception has disabled ActiveX in the browser?
