In IE 5.n, go to page


Note the last paragraph reads
 The XML header of this file is .

But view source and you will see that the XML says

<data>The XML header of this file is
&lt;?xml encoding="utf-8"?&gt;.

The CSS handler for XML in IE5 apparantly converts it
to HTML without redelimiting the <, and the HTML  renderer
strips it as a PI.  As I said, I emailed with an MS engineer before on
this issue, so the problem is hardly new.
