The validator doesn't recognise it becuase it is comparing your code
to the standard. It is possible that there are some aspects of the
standard which IE supports but no other browser does (although I can't
think of any off the top of my head), but the scroll bar altering code
is an unofficial Microsoft extension and not part of the standard.

It sounds like whatever server module you are using to parse the SSI
is noticing that it is XML and sending it as application/xml or
text/xml instead of text/html (or, more correctly,
application/xml+xhtml). Check the content-type header returned by the
server along with the manual for your SSI parser.
