Yup... you actually saved IEs (actually, MSHTMLs) internal representation of the document, not the document as it where...

MSHTML has been an annoying piece of software for client side (X)HTML development for years and this is not just a troll...

Rather a nasty surprise this morning.

Given a document headed up

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns=""; xml:lang="en" lang="en">

and valid to that dtd.

Mail it to someone on a win32 platform. They open it, using ie6. Then save it using save as.

Corruption seems to occur insofar as the tags are upcased,
elements are not closed off, html style etc.
  Suggested that its the dom view from ie6 that screws the xhtml.

anyone else noted this?
