[Bug 14689] New: xml-stylesheet with type=text/xsl needs to be handled explicitly


           Summary: xml-stylesheet with type=text/xsl needs to be handled
           Product: HTML WG

Section 5.5.3 "Page load processing model for XML files" currently mentions
xml-stylesheet only in connection with its interaction with the application
cache.  The XML Core WG requests that prose be added to cover the case where an
xml-stylesheet PI is present, with type other than text/css, and in particular
to handle the case where type='text/xsl' or type='application/xslt+xml' by
invoking XSLT with the referenced stylesheet and starting the page load process
over with the results, consistent with existing browser practice.

The WG also suggests that it might be a good idea to cover the case where no
stylesheet PI is present and the root element is not 'html', where existing
practice is to produce a default indented tree view of the XML itself.
