PIs are for passing procedural instructions through XML to a
post-processor. They are not intended for consumption and

For example you can encode a forced line-break in a title that
you know will be required when the document is typeset but which
you don't wish to hard-code wrt the document structure:
<title>How I Made <?LaTeX \\?>A Million Dollars</title>
