Unfortunately IE has a bug that means that it will not accept the
xhtml+mathMl dtd (or any other dtd based on XHTML modularisation)

This means that you can not use entity names in your document 
so rather than sum you have to have to use &#x2211; rather than &sum;
or alternatively you can use
<!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM "myents.dtd">

where myents.dtd has (only) whatever entities you need, copied from teh
mathml dtd eg in this case
<!ENTITY Sum "&#x2211;">
<!ENTITY infin "&#x221E;">

Then you can use &Sum; and &infin;

Hopefully this will get fixed at the next update to IE6, whenever that
will be.
