I agree with us Bernhard but I don't want to go mucking around with
Cocoon or any other XSLT publishing framework, I am looking for the path
of least resistance here ;)

So far I have the following:


which renders properly in Mozilla 1.0 but not in IE 6.0.

My last question is how do I set the server to send all .xhtml documents
as text/xml?

I also promise, if I get this working to post the solution, so that
dopes like me will stop bothering this forum ;)

I haven't got it running either (so that
the stypesheet will work for both
Mozilla and non-MathML-enabled browsers).

I think the best thing is to use server side browser detection
and server side stylesheet transformation.

That should not be a problem if you use the stylesheet. If you are using
the stylesheet then all browsers (that work at all)  will want to see
the document as text/xml not text/html. So differences in handling
text/html should not be a problem (this is one of teh main benefits of
using the stylesheet, it enables rendering of XHTML documents served as
XML in internet explorer)
