Yes.  Have you?  Here, just to help you out:

test.xhtml:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" id="one"/>

test.html:

<script>
var x = new XMLHttpRequest();
x.open("GET", "test.xhtml", false);
x.send("");
alert(x.responseXML.getElementById('one'));
</script>

But since you're apparently not willing to test yourself (the amount of time it 
takes to write the test is smaller than the amount of time it takes to send all 
these mails), I'll just let you know that Gecko 1.8, Gecko 1.9, Safari 3.1, and 
Opera 9.25 all hand back the HTMLElement from that getElementById call.
