How can you be so confident that it's not your installation of IE that
is the broken one?

$ wget --header="Accept:application/xhtml+xml"
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 406 Not Acceptable

So it's unlikely that is the issue...

Much more likely is the fact that the rendering is just broken, 
possibly you want to take note of Appendix C of XHTML 1.0, as it
specifically highlights the problem many of us are having.

Better would be of course to simply use a HTML version that doesn't
have such arcane "rules" to actually allowed to be served as

It also directly touches on the confliction in XHTML 1.0 Appendix C.
of C.1 and C.14, you might want to ask the HTML Working Group how the
issue against that conflict is coming along, it's likely relevant to
you here too.
