Log Message:
Got rid of crazy encoding of attribute values that I though was XMI 1.1
standard.  It turns out that the *example* in the XMI 1.1 standard is
wrong!  After extensive combing of the spec and not seeing anything that
said things should ever work that way, I took a closer look at the DTD that
went with the "mail" example, and even the DTD effectively says the example
is wrong!  So I fixed the test to look the way the example *should* have
been written (per its own DTD) and got rid of the crufty extra code that
handled this bizarre case that I thought was required.

While combing the specs, I also discovered that the printed standard I have
is actually a *preliminary* copy, dated over a *year* older than the final
XMI 1.1 spec.  Aaaaagh!  Guess I'll need to spend some time going back over
the code and spec before I start work on the XMI writing facilities.  :(
