Re: [xml-dev] Why does my browser treat the XML Schema document at aURL as an XML document?

No sleight of hand... the server serves it as xml, so the browser
parses it using it's xml parser instead of its sgml parser... by
default it will then transform the xml using an internal xslt 1.0 to
create the pretty printed view you get when view xml in the browser,
or as in this case there is the stylesheet PI so the browser also
fetches the xslt and then applies that to the xml, presenting the

As far as the server is concerned it just served 2 xml files.

That's how I understand the process, if that's not right someone will
correct me :)
