How to get processing-instruction's pseudo-attribute

Hi all,

I have the following PI in the XML document:

<?page page_number='1' width='2000'?>

I want to retrieve the PI's pseudo-attribute in XSLT stylesheet. I tried:

<xsl:template match="processing-instruction('page)">
    <xsl:value-of select="@page_number">

This does NOT work. Because attributes are not really attributes in PI.

I tried the following method:
<xsl:template match="processing-instruction('page_start')">
        <xsl:variable name="page_number" select='substring-before(substring-after(., "page_number=&apos;"), "&apos;")'/>

Yes, this works. But this seems not the best way.

So, my question is:
Is there a standard way in XML/XSLT to retrieve PI's attribute? If not,  is there any plan to handle this in XML/XSLT standard?
