1) Note: Only the file http://metalab.unc.edu/webster/xml_files/gcide.xml is
   a well-formed XML file. (The other files are use as external general
   entities within 'gcide.xml').

2) I get (using libwww-perl) "Content-Type: text/plain" in the response
   headers for http://metalab.unc.edu/webster/xml_files/gcide.xml

So, given (2), treating the contents of this file as text, not XML, would seem
to be correct behaviour? [Using Dec05 WinNT nightly].

Content-Type: text/plain

If the content type is "text/plain" then it is reasonable to display the xml
file as text.  Marking this bug invalid.
