We are experiencing Page Preview problems, too. We just installed XMetaL
2.0. When I try to preview tagged documents (even the sample documents
provided with XMetaL), I get the following error message:
Page Preview Error: Automation server can't create object. You need to get
the latest version of MSXML from the Microsoft site.
I emailed SoftQuad about the problem (a few days ago) but have not yet
received a reply.
