Section 3.7.1.1 Attributes	
Technical	

"Predefined entity references and character references in the attribute
content are expanded into their referenced strings, as described in
3.1.1 Literals.

Each consecutive sequence of literal characters in the attribute content
is treated as a string containing those characters. Whitespace in
attribute content is normalized according to the rules for ""Attribute
Value Normalization"" in [XML 1.0] (each whitespace character is
replaced by a space (#x20) character.)": Often whitespace in attribute
values is entitized to avoid the attribute value normalization. By doing
expansion first, we loose this capability and lose the ability to
preserve certain whitespace characters. This should be fixed.
