i think the question of processing instructions (PI) such as <? used  
in Biferno, are only relevant in particular situation where the code  
must be validated before processing which is normally NOT what you want.

I can't think right now of the usefullness of such a validator since  
the html code in the source (if any) is usually completely different  
than what eventually the user agent gets after the server side  
scripting language processes the page.

It would surely be nice have PI being a valid tag in HTML5, but  
validating source code is not what one usually wants since what is  
important to be valid is the resulting HTML which does not even  
containg processing instructions.
