Hi Christian,

Since that's what the spec says, and 4 implementations reported they 
complied with that example [1] (retaining the PI in the ordinary case, plus 
the comments in the "commented" case) I presume so. <smile/> Do you mean 
those nodes aren't provided to you by your XPath implementation (which one?)?
