Thanks for the feedback. At this time, my demo is XHTML 1.1 served as application/xhtml+xml,

That's the behaviour I'd have expected but with ie8 and windows 7 it _is_ processing the file as XML, it then fails for another well known reason: msxml can't parse the XHTMl DTD's, you don't really need the doctype in the source (and you certainly don't want the browser to fetch the dtd, which is considerably larger than your source file) so not using a dtd in the source, or using the xhtml+mathml dtd which does work with msxml would make things portable.
