Hi Greg,
If I put your example into a xml document, say

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

then its perfectly valid and the  &lt and &gt get
resolved by the parser. For the xls stylesheet its
identical to:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
so where is the need to translate?
Regards Manfred
