In which context are newlines valid values, i.e. is a newline

Clarifying the question:
Is this a valid xml fragment:
<mytag myattribute="hello

The document is well-formed. It is not *valid* because it doesn't have
a DOCTYPE. But you likely meant *well-formed*, not *valid*.

A newline in attribute values is okay, as is everything but either <&"
or <&'. [1] However, the parser is required to normalize all whitespace
characters to spaces. [2] [1] [2]
