This might happen if IE isn't seeing your page as valid XHTML and thus
is going into "quirks" mode, which is a compatibility mode with older
non-standard-compliant behaviours. To go into "XHTML" mode, you have to
add to your TS:

  page.config.doctypeSwitch = 1

This will exchange the <!DOCTYPE and <?xml headers which will make IE
happy. Also make sure your page is valid XHTML.
