No doubt that works around the issue but it doesn't make ME feel much
better. The problem of "confused" template parameters was a big one with VC
6.0 . I had hoped all those issues had been resolved with VC 7.1. Now I'm
not so sure. I did make a small example which included several archive types
but I had no problem with it so I'm kind of stuck.

This is most likely a bug of my own in generating/parsing xml archives.
Again, I'm going to need a smaller test case. However, your example does
illustrate the need to replace the assertions with exceptions in case the
XML has been tampered with - I'll add these in.
