Re: PIs within a DTD

Huh?  The Infoset spec says:

  There is a processing instruction information item for each
  processing instruction in the document.

They appear as the children of

 - the document info item for PIs at top-level
 - the document type declaration info item for PIs in the internal
   and external subsets
 - element info items

Perhaps you were thinking of comments, which are indeed not
represented when they occur in the DTD (they are useless out of
context of the declarations).
