Public bug reported:

The following UTF-8 document is rendered correctly in Firefox 9.0.1
safe-mode if the filename ends with .xhtml, but not if it ends with

<?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">
<p>Les garçons sont à l'école.</p>

Chromium 15 renders both versions correctly, i.e. special chars are
correctly displayed.

Correct: Les garçons sont à l'école.
Incorrect: Les garçons sont à l'école.

Attached are the two versions (.html and .xhtml) of the document.
