Re: [xml-dev] newline/form feed valid as attribute value?

In particular: TagSoup, which parses arbitrary HTML, has a PYX output mode
of just such a form.  PYX differs trivially from ESIS in that in ESIS,
attribute lines precede the start-tag line, whereas in PYX they follow.
I am not sure why Sean McGrath made this change, but I have followed him.
