I double checked a few minutes ago to make sure the installer wasn't
mangling something.

That should be an option.  I don't like it, though.  My preference would
be to compile libxml2 for Win32 in a manner which works on Win9x.  I've
been unable to get it to compile using MSVC, though.  The MSVC project
files with libxml2 were not usable last I checked.  The libxml2
libraries, which don't work on 9x, appear to be compiled with MinGW32. 
However, I have not managed to compile libxml2 with MinGW32.  Been
preoccupied past few weeks.  I'll try to spend some time on it this
