Yeah, it's based on Tasman. It's more improved over ie5m than ie6w was
over ie5.0w though. Also it identifies itself as ie6...

I would argue that an XHTML engine may support just the XHTML DTDs
with XML equivalent treatment without having a full XML engine. Though
please don't ask me for a reason for going that way instead of having
a full XML engine...

My guess would be that the MSN/OSX browser just has an XHTML mode for
the tag soup parser and throws the application/xhtml+xml content type
to that.
