Yes that's what I meant.

You are right. It had been a while since I had done a transformation
in the browser, but actually neither IE nor FF apply the default
rendering after a transformation; the default rendering is only used
for plain XML files. Sorry about that.

(Here's why the default rendering is useful though, and much missed in
Chrome: many interactions with web services use XML and it's nice to
be able to set them up / debug the protocol in a browser.)
