Hm... I don't know why I thought otherwise.  I checked with the spec 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.4), and it really doesn't say yes or 
no to this.  But I'm sure you're right, since some attributes contain 
quoted content, which is why you would switch from one to the other.

In trying to avoid calling XML entities "tags", I forgot that we were 
talking about XHTML, where "tags" do indeed exist.

Thanks for the correction.
