you provide an escaped '&', you end up with &amp; ... which

I've never looked at the underlying
code that does this, but suspect it's not so much "by design"
as simply "quick and easy" parsing? Perhaps based on the assumption
that the "input" need not be XML ... but in at least in most
cases the output is?
