I was excited to read about recent MathML progress in
a "Notices of the AMS" article about TeX, and even more
excited when I visited the "test page" with my IE 6.0
browser: http://www.w3.org/Math/XSL/pmathml2.xml

But unfortunately when I copied the stylesheets indicated
on the page at http://www.w3.org/Math/XSL/ to my webserver,
the sample text which worked so well when browsed from my
local filesystem wouldn't behave properly.

http://www.wolfendens.com/mathml/sample1.xml works as expected,
giving me the standard failure when I browse it with IE 6.0:

  Access is denied. Error processing resource

But http://www.wolfendens.com/mathml/sample2.xml gives this
IE error, which is NOT expected:

  Error while parsing "http://www.wolfendens.com/mathml/ctop.xsl".
  The character '<' cannot be used in an attribute value. 

And http://www.wolfendens.com/mathml/sample3.xml gives this
IE error, which is also unexpected:

  The stylesheet does not contain a document element. The
  stylesheet may be empty, or it may not be a well-formed XML

I imagine a common question is "How can I publish MathML"
web pages on my webserver so that folks can read them
with IE browsers?" Please consider posting this on your

Thanks for your attention,
