Here's the spec:

A faceless ActiveX object, light enough to be embedded in a web page, that's an XML-RPC client.

This client handles marshalling of parameters, it handles parsing the result, and in between it handles making the HTTP request back to the server.

The scripter can then use VBScript or JScript, running in the web page, to call back to the server by using this object. The scripts don't have to deal with XML, they just pass a method name and parameters to the ActiveX object which calls the server and returns the result back to the script.

There are responses to this message:
