Here is what I get when I tried it using WinXP and IE 6 SP1
 
DTD Validation when using the NewParser option or MXXMLWriter to build a
DOMDocument is not supported. Line 4, Position 53 
 
Looks like it might try to work....

For an example, try opening the page in my signature.  IE will want to 
save it to disk.  An XHTML_compatible browser such as Mozilla will show 
it fine.  It is properly served as application/xhtml+xml since it is 
XHTML 1.1.
