it works for me, with some tweaking....

specs
-----
XPSP2
IExplore.exe mod.version 6.0.2900.2912
Arch. Compaq nx5000 w/intel

tweak ********************

I had to strip off the xmp
tags and add 1 x html closing tag. After doing this it worked fine.

Affected dll: mshtml.dll
Offset: 0x0011a958
Error: 0xc0000005
