Remember that your DSSSL stylesheet is an SGML document first; that
document's content is a set of style processing instructions after
it's parsed.

So, you can include <? in content the same way you would in any other
document: &lt;?.

However, I find it cumbersome to do this, and usually just wrap the
entire body of my stylesheets in a CDATA marked section, as another
poster suggested you do for this definition.
