IE6 uses MSXML3 rather than MSXML4 (unless you invoke your
transformation through a script). As Alexander says, MSXML4 gives the
wrong answer. It gives the right answer if you do:

  <xsl:value-of select="(ancestor::x)[1]/@n" />

so the fact it gives the wrong answer when $x is used instead is
particularly peculiar.
