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.
