yes, off course I have: this is the idea of Cocoon, isn't it: inside the 
pipeline everything is X(HT)ML; I use a XSL document that generates the 
"frame": navigation, header, footer, and HTML generator creates XHTML 
documents out of available HTML documents, hence parts of those 
documents (everything inside the <BODY> in this case) is copied 
(xsl:copy-of) into the new naviation frame, header, body generated by 
the XSL...

so in the end of the pipeline I have, as always with Cocoon (when 
publishing to html) XHTML, this is completly clear, but then I use the 
HTML serializer to create HTML out of this XHTML.
So in my opinion the purpose of this serializer is (among others) to 
remove (or modify) everything from the document that is not HTML 
compliant and generate a correct HTML document-

And this is precisly what it does not do under certain circumstances, as 
my Code Snippet shows.
