>> I propose to unify and use <?tag ?> in any case.
DH> They have different meanings and are used for different things
Try to stand on point of view, that
  <tag> can be considered like _StdOut_ (standard stream of output), and
  <?tag?> like _StdErr_ (standard stream of errors).
I propose to draw a distinction in this direction.
It apparently will be obviously, if you read my file
http://sql50.euro.ru/sql5.ppt slide #67-#86 (topic "Developing of XML").
Let <?tag?> will be stream of commands
and errors
That you have no doubts:
i want, that browser _react_ at this commands.

What about stream of data, compare
and my proposals
http://html60.euro.ru/site/html60/en/author/quest_eng.htm ,
http://html60.euro.ru/site/html60/en/author/looker_eng.htm ,
(on the one hand) with idea of <?tag?> (on the other hand).


>> Now we have two way to write service information in html-document:
>> 1) in <!name > (e.g. <!doctype >
DH> A markup declaration.
>> 2) in <?name?> (e.g. <?xml ?>, <?xml-stylesheet ?>
DH> A processing instruction.
O my god, you are deriving conceptual conclusion from linguistical
property. I can't be agreed with this method.

DH> so it would never work.
DH> As an example, browsers would not recognize "<?doctype html?>>"
Until manufacturers will write code, which react at
"<?doctype html?>" and "<!doctype html >" identically.
