Right, that's what I meant.

I'm operating under the assumption that XML has no standard way, in
attribute values, to represent every possible character. Whereas in
CDATA, there *is* a way to represent every possible character.

If there were a way to do it in attributes as well, then we'd be fine
(even if that way were different from the CDATA way).
