Really? It's not that way in SGML. Clause 11.3.4 "Default Value" (p. 424-5
in the Handbook) has this
 default value =
( ( RNI,
ps+ ) ?,
attribute value specification ) |
which basically means that a string literal for the a.v.s will not be
replaceble parameter data.
FWIW, nsgmls doesn't expand PEs here either.
