Hi,

  XML Namespaces 1.0 Errata and XML Namespaces 1.1 clearly specify that
PI targets in XML documents containing a colon render the document
namespace illformed. What if a namespace aware XML processor encounters
such a PI in an external subset? A number of validating namespace aware
XML processors refuse to process such a document while W3C publishes
DTDs that contain such PIs, e.g.

  http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/xhtml-arch-1.mod

Please clarify the situation in Namespaces 1.0 errata and Namespaces
1.1. Thanks.
