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

http://dbaron.org/mozilla/tests/compat?doctype=%3C%3Fxml+version%3D%221.0%22%3F%3E

but still using xhtml type, extension and xml PI

<blockquote>
All documents must have a DOCTYPE declaration

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

http://www1.chapman.edu/~jipsen/mathml/asciimath.html

is a HTML page with html extension, HTML 4.01 Transitional DOCTYPE
declaration is being served as text/html.
