	Some further information.

	Section 2.7 of the XML specification specifically
	forbids interpretation of character entitities in
	CDATA, quoting &lt; and &gt; as examples, but section
	2.4 makes specific exceptions for &quot; and &apos;
	in CDATA attributes.  Looks like there is no escape 
	convention to represent literal &quot; in XML!  Oops!

	RCDATA appears not to be supported, meaning that 
	re-declaring %URI as RCDATA is no longer an option.

	Looks to me as though there is a serious conflict between
	what is implemented and what is consistent with the 
	standards which are authorative in specific areas.
