Sound's like the files are not identical after all... The failing one 
could have white space after the root element's starting tag - then the 
first firstChild would be textNode. IE could be ignoring white space 
while FF not.

For example white space is sometimes difficult to catch with plain eye 
:-) Have tried copying file A over file B? Then you'd know they are 

Are the files served from the same place BTW?

Some URLs would be lovely, please.
