This is an interesting problem -- MSIE must consider the DTD files to
be of type text/xml, but they are not XML documents.  If they had an
XML declaration at the top (rather than just an encoding declaration), 
they would be invalid as part of a complete document.

I recommend downloading the DTDs and viewing them in a text editor.

All the best,
