hey good point. I've always just accepted it as one of those can't be done, blame it on whoever developed SGML/XML standards. so had a quick google.

found this on wikipedia,
CDATA in DTDs
[edit] CDATA-type attribute value

In Document Type Definition (DTD) files for SGML and XML, an attribute value may be designated as being of type CDATA: arbitrary character data. Within a CDATA-type attribute, character and entity reference markup is allowed and will be processed when the document is read.

For example, if an XML DTD contains

<!ATTLIST foo a CDATA #IMPLIED>

it means that elements named foo may optionally have an attribute named "a" which is of type CDATA. In an XML document that is valid according to this DTD, an element like this might appear:

<foo a="1 &amp; 2 are < &#51; &#x0A;" />

and an XML parser would interpret the "a" attribute's value as being the character data "1 & 2 are < 3".

so maybe if you use DTD you can.
will try it at the office tomorrow as well.
