For the record the SGML handbook gives an example of using <!ENTITY> to
define processing instructions with the PI keyword, see page 41 - B.6.2.1

        <!ENTITY page PI "newpage; space = 3">

The keyword PI indicates that the entity will be interpreted as a
processing instruction when referenced! This provides a clean way of
abbreviating longer processing instructions which would normally
be defined with the <? ...> mechanism.
Best wishes,
