As Gary Stephenson points out in news article <97c3ug$938$1@bugstomper.ihug.com.au>,
the spec say the a standalone document must not have attributes externally
declared whose values change as a result of normalization.  The description
of attribute normalization includes entity expansion, which should not
count as a "change" for this purpose.  Also I can't see any problem with an
attribute containing a tab (etc) that is changed to space, since that
happens even for CDATA attributes.


 The standalone document declaration must have the value "no" if any
 external markup declarations contain declarations of:

 ...

 attributes with tokenized types, where the attribute appears in the
 document with a value such that normalization will produce a different
 value from that which would be produced in the absence of the declaration.
