I spent a happy 15 mins spooking round the site trying to find the story,
its full URL (rather than the URL of the site) and the source of the document.

Try techweb.cmp.com/iw/631/31iujl.htm

It contains a 3-line example of XML which gets the <?XML ...?> line
correct but changes from the RCS to nested brackets (...) for tags.  In one
version under frames the DOCTYPE didn't display at all.  It also displayed
the first line as
<?XML VERSION&EQUALS"1.0"?>
I assume that round brackets were used to stop the browser trashing the
XML source.  The article said nice things, but the example itself didn't
look much like XML.

This highlights the need to get <![CDATA[ ... ]]> supported by browser
manufacturers :-)  Then we can display examples of anything we like.
