I have included some of more environments and commands that I often use in the math.xml file. To keep track of what I have messed up, I wanted to enter a comment before the lines I added. It worked fine for the first two comments. After entering the third comment, when I tried to restart TXC, it fails to start under Windows XP Prof with the error message:

"unknown software exception" (0x80000003) appeared in the application at 0x004641e6

Deleting the comments or moving them to the end of the file helped! Now I tried to enter just one comment in the middle of the .xml-file and it crashes again. So there seems to be a problem with comments that are in the middle of the math.xml-file.

It also might be that I just don't know anything about xml...

    Ok, I had a look at it and it doesn't crash anymore. However, comments are still a problem. I am not sure what the problem is and will ask the original programmer to do something about it.

    I attach a smaller example file. As of 6.7.2007, this will raise an exception in line 558 of StyleFileContainer.cpp. This is the place where 'element' describes the first child of 'lxPackage' and I fear that element isn't a valid reference. Olli, can you have a look at it?
    File Added: crashmath.xml
