Would it be possible/interesting to have an interface that let's the 
caller decide what to do with the attribute  ?

This has nothing to do with xml higlighting but , on Android, I had to 
hack a bit (nothing comparable to what is suggested here) the 
highlighter class to enable it to directly produce an Android Spanned  
String (basically a String with spans attached to it) instead of 
producing a String with html content (that must be parsed into an 
Android Spanned String) ... The Formatter Class is nice but maybee it 
could be improved a bit to be more flexible.
