I haven't run NT 4 in a looong while, didn't know this.

%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc is there, yes, but somehow it does not
sound right for XML catalogs. I cannot give you a logical explanation, I
just have a bad feeling about storing XML catalogs there. Seen rationally,
nothing speaks against it.

This is okay.

I'm not a Cygwin user, but I think I know...

environment, it is a subdirectory in the Cygwin installation, which can also
be placed anywhere. Well, Cygwin users allready have libxml2 search their
/etc, but for me, Cygwin is but another app which I don't even have
installed. Placing XML catalogs there would be about the same as placing
them in any other app's directory, say
'C:\ProgramFiles\Adobe\Acrobat\Reader\etc'. :-) :-)
