Re: [xsl] Initial whitespace in PI from XSLT, main body

Do we want the behavior of almost all current XML processing tools to 
suddenly become "incompliant"?

Wendell is proposing an application-level house style for use of processing 
instructions, a rule for the next level up the protocol stack, which is 
perfectly legitimate.

In fact I've heard others propose a stronger convention, namely that processing 
instructions should use the syntax of attribute="value" pairs, as in an element 
start tag: that's the design convention used for the xml-stylesheet processing
