You were absolutely correct.  I was a little stumped because the foo.xml
example was 'working' (xml viewable upon view source).  

I should have looked at the formatters more carefully.

I strongly suspect that the problem is that your Netscape is not
configured to display URLs of the type text/xml, while IE and Mozilla are.
It just so happens that the XInclude examples don't return HTML, they
merely return XML. If you changed the cocoon-format type, you'd be able to
"view" the pages (that is to say - view source, not see anything
meaningful as the pages wouldn't contain valid HTML no matter what the
mime type said).
