Just FYI, Microsoft second level support has been able to reproduce the
problem where the MSHTML.DLL file in the February 11 2002 IE Cumulative
Patch breaks web pages that contain the Microsoft ListView Active-X control,
both by using my sample code and also their own test HTML code.

Correction, the Microsoft February 11 2002 IE Cumulative Patch appears to
break the MICROSOFT ListView Active-X control from the VB6 suite. [I
previously said this was a third party control, it is not.] I have sample
code on hand to show the problem, though I'm not sure if this is of interest
to anyone.

I wanted to report that we just installed the Q316059 February 11, 2002
cumulative IE patch from Microsoft. On every single machine here [confirmed
on at least 6 Windows 2000 SP2 machines], the MSHTML.DLL file included in
that patch broke our ability to run the ListView Active-X control. This was
a major problem for us.

Naturally, Microsoft gave no way to uninstall this patch. Replacing this
one file appeared to resolve the problem. I'm planning to report this to
Microsoft and FarPoint as well. <insert "trustworthy computing" joke here>
