in reply to XML::Writer "wrong" utf8 output

It's XML. Per spec, the hard tab character and 	 (and indeed 	) are defined to mean exactly the same thing.

If the output is going to be fed to an XML tool, that XML tool shouldn't care whether you've used a hard tab or whether you've used 	.

If the output is going to be fed to a non-XML tool, then why the hell are you feeding XML to a non-XML tool?! Stop doing that.

package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

    Actually, no they're not. A literal tab is considered whitespace in attribute values, whereas 	 refers to a tab. So if you want to include a tab in the attribute, you *have* to use 	.
