Did you try to take it out and see what happens? I.e., you can answer 
this yourself easily.

I would have thought that it's not the problem, but it'd be great if 
you or somebody else helps out by testing what was suggested.

If the problem is outside of Interpro, it's Expat, not Bioperl. It's 
the XML parser library that threw up.

Depends on where the problem is. It appears that the Interpro team 
already eliminated the double quotes in names. The is some hard-coded 
stuff in interpro.pm that needs to be removed,  and I heard Allen say 
he'll work on that.
