It's not the transformation doing the conversion.  The XMLOutputter is
doing the change.  It's being conservative and converting all the
pre-defined XML char entities in attribute values.  The output is
semantically equivalent.  

But, considering XMLOutputter always surrounded attribute values with
double-quotes, it doesn't make much sense to escape single-quotes.  I've
just checked in a change so single-quotes in attribute values remain
unaltered on output.

Please try with the latest code from CVS.
