It's a known "feature" of the XML parser in IE that it can not handle
the parameter entity usage in XHTML Modularisation DTDs including
The XHTML + MathML one. 
If you wish to test your document then it's best to test with a more
conformant parser (rxp is a good free one I find).

Currently in order to get the document into IE's XMl parser
you need to remove the DTD. (We are hoping a future IE release
will fix this.)

Unfortunately having removed the doctype you will hit another problem
that has only come to light since we advertised the stylesheet.

Referencing
 <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl"
 href="http://www.w3.org/Math/XSL/mathml.xsl"?>

as you have done, will work if the file is on your local machine but if
the file is on your remote server and tries to connect to (any) XSL file
on a _different_ server IE will refuse to load the file unless its
default security options are relaxed. We can't really recomend people
relax their security options (although that's tempting) so you will have
to also copy the xsl files to your server and then reference the local
copy of mathml.xsl. IE will load XSL files from the same server as the
document.

I will update the XSL documentation to warn of this problem
after I get back to work after Easter.
