  Well, right this looks strange but text node and attribute-values must have
different serialization routines anyway (line-feed need to be escaped as
character reference for example).

The resulting xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16LE"?>
<foo bar="&#xE4;&#xF6;&#xFC;">öäü?</foo>

Sorry, it has to be:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16LE"?>
<foo bar="&#xE4;&#xF6;&#xFC;&#x20AC;">öäü?</foo>

The attribute value is escaped, the text-nodes value not.
Since I did not found anything in the specs that states, that attribute 
values need to be excaped, although they *could* be serialized with the 
stated encoding (UTF-16LE), I'm asking for help on information; did I 
overlook something in the specs, or if this is a not intended bahaviour?
(Maby some context could be usefull: I'm just trying to implement (in 
Delphi) the w3c's saveToString method of the DOMSerializer interface).

  Well, how is that really a problem ? The serialization is different, 
but have to be different anyway. I don't see why this would be not
compliant or a problem for DOM implementation.
