Ok, but the html type is vital for MSIE and in absence of type just with a
xml PI...


but still using xhtml type, extension and xml PI


All documents must have a DOCTYPE declaration

About that MathML is only usable in X(HT)ML pages, well, next


is a HTML page with html extension, HTML 4.01 Transitional DOCTYPE
