We don't support the xml urls. For reasons, see below.

It's a mozilla problem. Mozilla is unsusable as an xml/xslt browser (Try,
for example, reading a german file, mozilla will bail because of entities it
doesn't *want* to read). However, in IE it works like a charm, but I don't
care, because I don't use that software ;-)

Additionally examples are *not* <pre>-formatted(due to the potential
problems of <pre>, there's also an archive discussion somewhere, about a
year old or so), but formatted with simple <br />s (Still not all, but this
the aim is on my TODO).

I'm tired of trying to support that broken mozilla-xml stuff, sorry. There's
no reasonable way to convince mozilla to render correctly other than html.
