Accessing unparsed html from the IE DOM

P: n/a
Hi,
Is there anyway I can access unparsed HTML from the IE DOM? I'm
trying to access the unparsed HTML so that I can convert the unparsed
HTML into meaningful content using an appropriate encoding rather than
the gibberish that I get from IE when I don't have the Language pack
installed.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Regards
ProvostZak

Sounds like contradictio in adiecto. Document Object Models are supposed to
reflect the document structure as parsed into a tree (or originally created
as a tree).
I'm trying to access the unparsed HTML so that I can convert the unparsed
HTML into meaningful content using an appropriate encoding rather than
the gibberish that I get from IE when I don't have the Language pack
installed.
Sounds like solving the wrong problem without knowing what the problem is.

Sounds like trying to fool a web browser into doing something that it
shouldn't be doing, rather than a problem in HTML authoring for the WWW. The
latter kind of problems can (and should) almost always be demonstrated by
posting a URL.

I have tried installing it. The perfomance issues that result due to a
XP language pack installation slow down parsing and rendering of the
page by almost 15%(across all sites).I'm not quite sure why the slow
down occurs. I have access to the IE DOM and am looking to encode the
unparsed HTML myself outside of IE.
