Depends on what "the problem" is.

MSIE (both 6 and 7) does not, under some circumstances, respect the  
established rules for setting the encoding of the document. Instead,  
it tries to sniff the encoding, a procedure that probably does not  
play well with the MathPlayer plugin. See, e.g. this discussion:

     http://annevankesteren.nl/2005/02/charset#comment-3167

That, as far as I can tell, does not have anything to do with the "IE7 
+MathPlayer shows an XML document tree"  problem.

Or, if it does, no one has explained the connection to me.
