Do you mean this?"In Explorer 6 Windows, Microsoft implemented one extra rule: if a doctype that triggers strict mode is preceded by an xml prolog, the page shows in quirks mode. This was done to allow web developers to achieve valid pages (which require a doctype) but nonetheless stay in quirks mode."Quoted from Quirksmode.orghttp://www.quirksmode.org/css/quirksmode.html
Yeah, that.Fuckers.Might as well make it display in quirks mode every Thursday, except during a full moon, for all the sense that makes.
Is there a workaround for this fucking case? Sure, i can remove the "...?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"..." line, but that is a foolish solution! IE Sucks!
I'm serving up dynamic content with .xml for a client. When I set the XML doctype to utf-8 IE chokes and can't display the parsed XHTML. When the doctype is set to encoding="iso-8859-1" IE behaves well. Any ideas or links to the way IE treats XML documents?I'm using jQuery to parse this XML document into valid XHTML.
