Re: [xml] assigning attribute value without using

Is it sane to use "xmlAddChild((xmlNodePtr)attr,

"xmlNodeSetContent" if assigning a value to an attribute node?

The intention is to reflect the DOM Attr.value method:
"On setting, this creates a Text node with the unparsed contents of the 
string, i.e. any characters that an XML processor would recognize as 
markup are instead treated as literal text."

I tried serialization and it worked fine.

Does anyone see any side effects?

  That should work, assuming attr->children == NULL, otherwise unlink the
children node list and free it.
