XSLT will not process a document that is not *valid* XML. 

My understanding, since we are using an XSLT transform to generate the 
HTML (using the default output method, which is XML...), is that the 
Provider output is *well-formed* XML, but invalid because it lacks the 
XML header and a single root node.

Which means that the workaround I did should fix all ecma-provider
output (as long as the output encoding remains UTF-8, which is quite

I don't know about other providers. Generally speaking, requiring 
providers to output HTML as well-formed XML (even if it's invalid) is 
probably a Good Thing, but I don't know if it is the case currently.
