This one got me too..

XMLHTTP returns the results as a unicode string.

To solve this, I used Server.CreateObject("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1") instead. All properties and methods are the same.

This component is available by default on any Windows 2000 Server with SP3. It works in exactly the same way, but for some reason does not return ResponseText as unicode.

If for some reason you MUST use the XMLHTTP component, let me know and I'll explain how (it involves converting the binary output to a string, a time consuming task!)
