Well, as I just posted in another message to the list, the difference is
pretty simple (just maybe not by reading the specs):

* When escaping attributes, simply additionally escape the four whitespace
characters, CR, LF, Space, and Tab, as well as single and double quotes.
If whitespace characters are encoded as character references, then they
will not be normalized/mutilated.

* All other escaped characters are the same.

* When decoding attributes, all four whitespace characters (if unescaped)
are transformed into spaces (0x20), but no treatment is given to
consecutive, preceding, or ending whitespace unless the attribute is not
CDATA (which we don't have to worry about). Again, if they are escaped,
there is nothing to worry about in either case.
