[xml] When will you support xml version 1.1?

Hi everybody,

in xml 1.1 you are allowed to have e.g.  as an attribute value. My xmllint does not support that version.
Are you planning to support xml 1.1?

Kind Regards,


  <?xml version = "1.1" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
  <foo a= '&#7;'/>

xmllint foo.xml:
  C:\tmp>xmllint foo.xml
  foo.xml:1: parser warning : Unsupported version '1.1'
  <?xml version = "1.1" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
  foo.xml:2: parser error : xmlParseCharRef: invalid xmlChar value 7
  <foo a= '&#7;'/>


  C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\my>xmllint --version
  xmllint: using libxml version 20623CVS2717

standard [1.1]:

  [2]   Char ::=        
     [#x1-#xD7FF] | [#xE000-#xFFFD]
   | [#x10000-#x10FFFF] /* any Unicode character,
                          excluding the surrogate
                          blocks, FFFE, and FFFF. */
  [2a]  RestrictedChar ::=
     [#x1-#x8] | [#xB-#xC] | [#xE-#x1F] | [#x7F-#x84]
   | [#x86-#x9F]

As CharRefs still must follow the Char production (and not Char-RestrictedChar) the above should be well-formed XML (1.1).
