The whole exercice about the stylesheet processing intruction lead me to see
a certain inconsistency between XLL and the style sheet PI. In the last
recommendation, the PI is stated as <?xml-stylesheet....?> and was in the
previous proposal <?xml:stylesheet...?>. XLL links according to the latest
posted proposal are expressed as <A xml:link="simple"
href="";>The W3C</A>. Why do we have to kind of notation

a) xml-stylesheet
b) xml:link

On based on namespaces and the other on ????. Is it because W3 want to
distinguish processing instructions from other kind of markups? Is the
implicit rule (but not stated anywhere) that xml-something is for processing
instructions and xml:something is for other stuff like pointers or other
kind of objects? Will W3 publish a paper to clarify this?

Thanx in advance for the answers
