Not true.  See production [16] in the XML spec.

I wondered about this.  I'll change the xschema in [2] to SYSTEM and add a 
production for PUBLIC.  Two questions:

1) Are there any conventions in PIs for use/no use of equals signs?

2) Do we always require a system identifier or are the choices system / public /
