This one caught me by surprise :-)

Digging deeper shows that you rely on IE's content-sniffing kicking in. 
This seems to depend on the extension being "html" (it won't work with 
"xhtml", for example). So IE is interpreting the page as HTML, not XHTML.

BTW: the page claims:

   <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
