I doubt, that you are right. Without hacking the Windows registry  
concerning the mimetype and the file suffix, or without tweaking the  
document with a XSLT stylesheet and serve it as an XML document, you  
have no chance to escape the download dialogue, IE presents, if it  
should display a document with "application/xhtml+xml":.

Andreas, could we agree on the repeated demand of Olivier, that you  
contain yourself with such offends and arrogance? Is this so much  
difficult for you to follow the (more than once repeated) advice?
