This is only a guess - but you've commented out the <!DOCTYPE> declaration.
Is there a reason for that?  A document without a doctype is not valid by
definition, and although it should still display, maybe Netscape has a
problem with DTD-less XML?

Subject: Viewing XML EAD documents using Netscape 7.0
