I have just started learning XHTML and CSS etc. I have been building pages using myEclipse and everything is going fine until now. I have created a page to learn how to use pseudo classes this works fine in Firefox but will not open in IE6. Instead of opening the page it asks if I want to save or open the page.MyEclipse saves the file as a .xht file and it seems to be this that is causing the problem, as if i change it to .html the file works. I guess what I need to know is; is there an issue with XHTML in IE or am I doing something wrong?Code below:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <title>Pseudo_class.xhtml</title> <meta http-equiv="keywords" content="enter,your,keywords,here" /> <meta http-equiv="description" content="A short description of this page." /> <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" /> <style type="text/css"> p > b:first-child { font-family:verdana; font-size:20pt } </style> <!--<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">--> </head> <body> <p>The first <b><b>bold will also increase in size and change font</b></b> but the next in a paragraph will be just be<b> bold.</b> Due to the Pseudo-Class.</p> <p>The first <b><b>bold will also increase in size and change font</b></b> but the next in a paragraph will be just be<b> bold.</b> Due to the Pseudo-Class.</p> <p>The style syntax used is:<style type="text/css"> p < b:first-child{font-family:comic-sans;font-size:24pt}</style></p> <p>This will happen every time the <b> tag is a child within <p></p> </body></html>Any help for a beginner would be gratefully recievedPompster Steve

IE 6 does support application/xml, but it doesn't support application/xhtml+xml, and neither does IE 7. application/xhtml+xml is the correct MIME type of XHTML documents, and is served with that MIME type with the file extension of .xht or .xhtml.
