My assinie blueberry input

The peanut gallery speaks..

It seems reasonable to me
(who am I anyway -- nobody..)
that the only illegal characters
in attribute and element names
should be the following ten:

/ < > & : <whitespace> ' "

where whitespace = \r,\n,\t

I am unsure about &.  Should you 
be able to use character entities within
names?  i.e. &amp;  Maybe that
is needed to support some
glyphs.  I have no idea.

Of course I am not privy to the
discussions when the regexp
for XML-names was initially
crafted ...
