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

If you send the file as application/xml then it _does_ need a client
side stylesheet or IE will use it's default stylesheet for XML files
which is the javascript folding tree view, which is cute but often not
the intended rendering of xhtml. Mozilla though will parse it as XML and
render it as XHTML (even without a specified stylesheet).

If you send the file as text/html then it doesn't need (and can't have)
a stylesheet but it goes straight to the html parser so things like
<br/> should be a syntax error except that html parsers in browsers don't
give errors unless they really can't avoid it.
