Huh? OmniMark allows access to data attributes just as easily as element
out of the box. Several CALS-aware tools understand the notations used
in data attributes, e.g., when used for graphics.
And I dont agree that elements and characters and attributes and
entities should be thought of as interconvertable: search routines look
for character codes--I don't know of any search routines which allow
grepping on data and elements.
