XML configuration files should not have thier values converted to Properties format





------- Additional Comments From matt@thebishops.org  2004-08-25 16:56 -------
One guiding principle would be to let the file format's semantics guide the encoding/decoding
rules 
therein.  XML has it's own encoding rules (entities) that the user should be familiar with.
 Same thing for 
properties files.  Mixing the rules is confusing and and counterintuitive.

If someone was porting from log4j.properties into log4j.xml, they would naturally consider
the 
encoding rules of XML and change their values accordingly.
