The most curious point about 3.3.3 is that it exists at all.  Why the
$#%%!@! should attribute values be "normalized" anyhow?  This was a pure
process failure: at no point during the 18-month development cycle of
XML 1.0 did anyone stand up and say "why are you doing this?"  I'd bet
big bucks that if someone had, the silly thing would have died a 
well-deserved death. -Tim
