Cocoon DOESN'T SUPPORT THIS, unless the html file is valid XHTML. Cocoon is 
an XML processor, not a general purpose HTML processor.

getfilecontent is for non-xml files only. You should use util:include-file 
instead. Or just put processing instructions in the xml files directly.

That's because it was treated as non-XML content.
