Me too. And I won't be presenting an argument. :-)

Peter, it seems that what we need to escape in attributes is a
superset of what needs to be escaped for CDATA.

So rather than using two different escape routines, how about a flag
to the escaper which sez use the extra attribute escaping rules,
too?

Also, is it safe to trim that list of extras to just CR, LF, and Tab
(I really don't wanna see the most common whitespace
character--Space--escaped if I don't have too)?

Finally, you agree that we should *stop* escaping ' and in CDATA
(that those belong in the only for attributes group), yes? I
believe we only do that because our xml-escaper is used for atts and
CDATA, and we knew we needed those escaped in atts.
