    XML parsers MUST NOT normalize on input.

    Abrigon Gusiq, are you listening? You have a peer.

    And through this revolting graveyard of the universe the muffled, maddening
    beating of drums, and thin, monotonous whine of blasphemous flutes from
    inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond Time; the detestable pounding
    and piping whereunto dance slowly, awkwardly, and absurdly the gigantic
    tenebrous ultimate gods --  the blind, voiceless, mindless gargoyles whose soul
    is Nyarlathotep. (Lovecraft) John Cowan||
