The processing instruction was used in drafts of the Namespaces
specification until approximately August 1998, at which time it was
supplanted by the attributes now described in the spec.

Subject: Docs for namespace and other processing instructions?

I have seen several references to the processing instruction
"<?xml:namespace". I have also read the "Namespaces in XML" spec, which
discusses the "xmlns:" attribute. The relationship between the two is not
clear to me. My confusion may be connected to the fact that I have been
unable to find any formal documentation of "<?xml:namspace" or other
processing instructions. Is there any such formal documentation?
