    This is no big deal. E.g.:
    <var>the net income per year</var>     could have been
    <var name="the net income per year"/>
    But when designing RuleML, we wanted to minimize the use of XML attributes.
    Since <> we have uniformly used the PCDATA
    content, rather than CDATA attribute values, as names of ind(ividual)s,
    var(iable)s, etc. This has also left us the option of embedded XHTML etc.

    A question about RuleML.
    Why doesn't ruleml.var take the variable name as an attribute?  This seems
    to be a very good place to use an attribute.
