Re: [xml-dev] validation with IE

Not that I've used it recently, but MSXML also used to have
a problem that its "validate on load" flag was ignored if the
document didn't have a <!DOCTYPE ...> declaration.  So
in addition to setting that flag, you also had to check whether
a supposedly "valid" document came back to you (via DOM)
as having a DOCTYPE.
