(I don't know if trying to keep all the cross-posts alive makes much
sense, but...)

/ Elliotte Harold <elharo@metalab.unc.edu> was heard to say:
| xml-stylesheet is an obvious example of a processing instruction that
| takes advantage of the reserved nature of names beginning with xml,
| yet does not use a prefix. Furthermore, the spec that defines
| xml-stylesheet postdates Namespaces in XML by about half a year.

If xml-stylesheet could have used a colon, I'm darned sure it would
have, but PI targets (alas) are NCNames.
