Internet Explorer 5.x ignores the MIME type when it sees a file which it 
thinks is XML, and instead of invoking the associated plug-in or control, 
Internet Explorer tries to parse the XML itself. If the file includes a 
filename extension which is associated with a registered MIME type, 
however, Internet Explorer will successfully invoke the associated plug-in 
or control.

If you wish to see this behavior fixed in a future version of Internet 
Explorer, please contact Microsoft.
