      Description

      As the attached test case shows, it is easy to create invalid xml files without any warning or notice.

      In my opinion there should be at least a hint in the api description on https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qdomelement.html#setAttribute.

      Besides the used value there are other values that should not be used, see https://www.w3.org/TR/xml11/#charsets.
