JavaScript XML IE and FireFox

Once again I’m doing a lot of JavaScript, but with XML.  I have also been tasked with getting this JS to work in FireFox and IE. 
Some of the thing I’m having to do are the following:
Load XML
Create new Node/Elements
Edit Attribute
Find Node/Element (based on XPath)
//This works with IE and FireFox
function LoadXml(xml) {
 var xmlDoc = null;
 if (window.ActiveXObject) {
  xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
  xmlDoc.async = "false";
 } else if (document.implementation && document.implementation.createDocument) {
  parser = new DOMParser();
  xmlDoc = parser.parseFromString(xml, "text/xml");
 return xmlDoc;
function FindNodeOnElementAndAttribute(xmlDoc, elementName, attributeName, attributeValue) {
 var node
 var xPath = "//" + elementName + "[@" + attributeName + "=’" + attributeValue + "’]";
 if (window.ActiveXObject) {
   node = xmlDoc.selectSingleNode(xPath);
  } else if (XPathEvaluator) {
  var xpe = new XPathEvaluator();
  var nsResolver = xpe.createNSResolver(xmlDoc.ownerDocument == null ? xmlDoc.documentElement : xmlDoc.ownerDocument.documentElement);
  var results = xpe.evaluate(xPath, xmlDoc, nsResolver, XPathResult.FIRST_ORDERED_NODE_TYPE, null);
  node = results.singleNodeValue;
 return node;

ASP.NET AJAX WebServices and ScriptServices

I’ve been working with ASP.NET AJAX for the past week and the following resources allowed me to get up to speed pretty fast.  The following two books that I list are pretty good.   Both of the them cover some different information.  I believe the Professional ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX is a little easier to read and the examples are much better. 
Video – How Do I: Use an ASP.NET AJAX ScriptManagerProxy?
Video – How Do I: ASP.NET AJAX Enable an Existing Web Service?
Video – How Do I: Make Client-Side Network Callbacks with ASP.NET AJAX?

AJAX and JavaScript in ASP.NET & Visual Studio 2008

I have once again started working with AJAX.  About 8 months ago I was pretty deep into ASP.NET and AJAX, but since then I’ve done little with AJAX.  I’ve been finding many good reference for AJAX and do not have a common place to keep all these reference.  So for convince I’m going to keep the references here.

Using Visual Studio 2008, ASP.NET 3.5, and AJAX
(I went through the example in this article and everything seemed to work fine)
