xslt parse xhtml

no it doesn't. See:


that is an example which confirms what I said, not contradicts it.
It is sent as html:

text/html; charset=UTF-8

so (presumably) uses mechanisms to ensure that the XML syntax is close
enough to HTML to get past a browser's lax html parser.

The comment of mine that you quote refers to sending the file with an XML
mime type when it will be parsed with a real XML parser (msxml in IE and
I think an expat derivative in mozilla).

I suppose I should have snipped more. I was referring to the part about needing a client side transformation.
