Actually, the attribute format does have one advantage.  XML 1.0 contains
(IMHO) a design error whereby attribute values are "normalized", i.e the
white space is condensed, line breaks are pulled out, and so on.  This
would allow you to write

<path d="

and still have it show up in the app with just single space characters.

Sigh. -Tim
