IE+XML+XSL and html namespace

When I feed an XML document to Internet Explorer 5.0 using a CSS2 stylesheet
and declare html as a namespace in the document element's start-tag, IE
recognizes html namespace element types and displays them properly. For
example, the following shows up as a working form:

  <html:form action="">
    <html:input type="submit" value="Yahoo"/><html:input size="22"

However, if I'm using an XSL stylesheet, it doesn't work. Does anyone know
how I can get html-specific elements to work in an XML document displayed in
IE using XSL? (I'm actually interested in using html:object, html:script,
and  html:xml "data island" elements to pass some XML markup to an ActiveX
control. This also works using CSS and not XSL, but an html:form example was
easier to include in this message.)
