I'm getting an exception in mxUtils.parseXml() in IE7. It tests document.documentMode, which is undefined in IE7. This causes the code to execute the IE9 logic of constructing a new DomParser, which fails because it does not exist in IE7.

I worked around the problem with:

if (mxClient.IS_IE && typeof(document.documentMode) === 'undefined' || document.documentMode < 9)

BTW, running IE9 in IE7 document mode does not have this problem ... document.documentMode is defined and the value is 7.
