Why doesn't it escape the & character, though.. that's my question. It's
pretty well known that unless in CDATA what follows & is an entity defining
a special character.

Don't just go for a quick bandaid. If this product really doesn't escape &
I'd question if it's really been used in production at all.

Aaron's suggestion of putting it in CDATA "should" work.. but that doesn't
mean it's correct.

I'll report back after I test Aaron's tip.

I know I can modify XMLSERVICE as well as other open source, but since
XMLSERVICE is being widely deployed and even as part of OS updates that
would not be my first choice which is why I posted here.

I figured it was some of my XML ignorance causing me issues :-)

I believe that both Aaron and Charles have pointed you to the
documentation that deals with your issue.

I was merely pointing out at the time that if you perceive a flaw then you
can fix it - there was no need to hack _around_ it.

I did, and still believe, that XMLSERVICE is production ready - but I
never said it was perfect.

There is that :-)

However one would think if guys like Zend, Mike Pavlak and Jon Paris
are promoting its use it is already production ready so why should I
need to tweak it.

Maybe Zend has done their own hacks ?

XMLSERVICE is Open Source Richard.

If you think it needs fixing why not fix it instead of hacking around it?
