While I agree in general, osmoss does currently make the assumption
that any character that appears in a string in the database is
automatically valid XML. I would have expected the XML output creater
to have escaped it to  at least.

However, if we determine that we don't want characters < 32 in the
database then there's no problem. I assume XML accepts newlines inside
attributes OK; I can imagine a case being made for then at some point.

Have a nice day,
