Welcome to the wonderful world of XML, where the syntax has been tuned 
to ease the life of grammar parser developers. What you just have 
experienced are processing instructions and Character Data sections.

I don't follow your argument about developers vs designers though: real 
authors wouldn't put <?php fragments into their content, won't they?

Nope, an XML course hasn't been included into the Forrest docs - as with 
Anakia, Stylebook and other site-generation related Apache tools... 
would this be useful? I happen to be able to fit my XML syntax intro 
course into any time scale possible: the shortest so far is under 15'. 
Maybe a little write-up of that could be added to Forrest.
