The algorithm in 3.3.3 applied to a non-CDATA attribute "foo 	 bar" will first replace the character reference with a tab character, so we will have space tab space Then the "further processing" will do nothing, because there are no sequences of more than one space character. The only way that the tab could become a space is if both the first and third points of section 3.3.3 were applied to it, but the natural reading is that those points are alternatives. -- Richard -- Spam filter: to mail me from a .com/.net site, put my surname in the headers.
