Ok, I am imorting my base template, and am overriding the root
template match for the Ajax request.  I have an xsl:output method to
HTML with no doctype specification here, but it does exist in the
imported template.  So effectively, I am doing what you are
suggesting.  Is it the .NET processor throwing that in there?
Could it be, that with no top level element, that the .NET processor
doens't process this properly?
