Sigh, but that's _exactly_ the problem, conformance with MSXML is used as a
yardstick by many many organizations (as Len notes). If I can't simply
browse a modularized XHTML document in IE ... as _XML_ then people insist
that there is something wrong with the _DTD_. Sigh.

Composition, right. I don't mean to imply that none can, just none that I
own (except Notepad).
