A "?" character found during the "tag open state" (immediately after a "<"
character, in other words) causes the tokeniser to switch to the bogus
comment state, which closes at the first occurance of ">".
So basically, PIs get parsed just like in SGML, except that they get added
to the DOM as a Comment node instead of a PI node.
