Hmmph... well I don't profess to understand much of this character stuff,
but it seemed to me logical that character refs would be a good way to
escape characters not otherwise allowed in text ... I'm sure there is a good
reason why this isn't allowed -- I mean it does let me stuff an < into an
attribute, so what is the huge difference between that and � ? Oh well,
I never should have piped in on this thread anyways...
