I guess you mean this:

It's invalid HTML and hideously malformed XHTML (due to lack of '?>' to 
close, it's not even a valid XML Processing Instruction, much less a 
tag). Plus the use of <element xmlns:something> without an attribute 
value, which is usually used together with it, is also malformed in HTML 
and XML.

I strongly advise against use of <?import>. Even if you must use IE's 
'behaviors' model there are better ways of doing it, that don't break 
all other XML tools.
