I have a new SAX parser filter in the planning stages called PIEngine.
It will take three actions w.r.t. PIs, selectable by mode switches:

	notation resolution: replace any PI target with the URI
	declared in the corresponding notation declaration, provided
	there is one.

	character references: convert numeric character references
	in PI data to the corresponding characters

	pseudo-elements: decode PIs as if they contained attributes
	(a bare name is interpreted as name="name", as in SGML)
	and pass them as empty elements with "?" prefixed to the name.
