I just learnt this incredibly useful trick: if you rename an *.MSD file to be *.zip, you can open it up in WinZip and see the component *.XML files.

This allowed me to debug a complicated problem involving incorrect data paths - hard to do in the dark, but simple once I knew where to look.

ESRI - could we have an official viewer which allows us to do this legitimately?
