Special Notes

Browsers that don't understand the application/xhtml+xml mimetype can be sent the document as text/html instead. This avoids the problems encountered when those browsers try to deal with a mimetype they don't recognize. All browsers tested ignored any xml-stylesheet PIs when the document is sent with a non-xml mimetype. However, it is best not to include XML PIs if the document is not sent as an xml application because any code encountered before the <!DOCTYPE> will cause IE6 to use quirks mode to render the document. Also, including a XML PI in an HTML document isn't valid.
