You could preprocess the data with e.g. sed, perl, or with the tool you're using to retrieve the documents, just by replacing every '&' character in the document with "&". This could, however, not work if the XML document contains entity references (like  ) or character entity references (like  ), in which case you should only replace the ampersands that are not entity delimiters.
