I foound this out when trying to use URL rewriting for URLs like this one:


This is relevant because the error that appears when I tried this URL is a bit different. But I couldn't create a good test case to send yet (to many libraries and LiftWeb in the mix). I hope the solution to this simpler bug solves my other one dough.

The exact error that is shown by a browser is
document.write is not a function
If the most basic JS function is not recognized this means that browser doesn't see this document HTML or XHTML there is nothing CKEditor can do here (Even the basic scripts won't work - checkout my sample).

Your example works provided that you remove <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

According to

An XML declaration is not required in all XML documents; however XHTML document authors are strongly encouraged to use XML declarations in all their documents. Such a declaration is required when the character encoding of the document is other than the default UTF-8 or UTF-16 and no encoding was determined by a higher-level protocol.

To workaround the problem you should remove the xml declaration and UTF-8 encoding (which I assume you are using)
