What you are seeing is IE's lack of support for XHTML.  If you name the file
examp2.htm, it treats it as HTML (not XHTML) and just parses it.  When you name it
examp2.xml, it treats it as XML and does not realize that it is actually XHTML.

We are all agreed that your theory is crazy.  The
question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough
to have a chance of being correct.  My own feeling is
that it is not crazy enough.
