xml-dev folks,

I'm *very* sorry for the confusion my sloppy mail has caused. Thanks 
to the individuals that noticed me (there was quite a lot of private 
mail). A good sign, people care.

This is wrong again. *bummer*

This is wrong, too. "xml" must be lower-case.

Why ? Productions [24] and [25] in section 2.8 !

[24]  XMLDecl ::=  '<?xml' VersionInfo EncodingDecl? SDDecl? S? '?>'
[25]  VersionInfo ::=  S 'version' Eq 
				('"VersionNum"'| "'VersionNum'") 

So the minimal correct PI is: <?xml version="1.0"?>
