I added the following paragraph to 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Group/9710/WD-html40-971024/convent.html:

   User agents must not render SGML processing instructions (e.g.,
   &lt;?full volume&gt;). For more information this and other SGML
   features that may be legal in HTML but aren't widely supported by
HTML
   user agents, please consult the section on [SGML features with
   limited support].

The link at the end of the paragraph points to:
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Group/9710/WD-html40-971024/appendix/notes.html#sgmlfeatures. 

I put the first sentence of the paragraph in convent.html since
it sounded normative, and the other informative recommendations
in the appendix.

Ian
