I realize you're addressing the question to Bob. I don't mean to muddy 
the water, but I'll make an observation and ask a couple of questions if 
I might.

Observation: your output, while identifying itself as xml doesn't 
contain a DOCTYPE statement. It would also be useful to know which 
browsers are causing you problems.

The presense of the xml statement and the absence of the DOCTYPE 
statement, separately and in combination, can create problems for some 
browsers that are trying to "do the right thing" with respect to your 
content. In addition, it seems to me unusual to see and xmlns attribute 
in the opening <head> tag. At this point, a decent browser doesn't know 
that your are feeding it HTML and doesn't know where to look for a 
validating DTD; in addition and unfortunately, the xml statement is 
going confuse Internet Explorer in ways that I'm not conversant with in 

Both of these observations lead me to ask whether you are attempting to 
target a particular (x)HTML version by setting attributes or parameters 
for the stylesheet output?

If these questions don't make any sense to you, I'd suggest you look at 
Bob's documentation, in particular under the HTML processing sections. 
I'm sorry I don't have a link ready to hand.
