That's what I thought, but I wanted to check and make sure. We are building
triggers and need to pass this as & without building a post processor to
strip the amp; and leave the &. Thanks very much for your help.

No, you don't.  An '&' by itself in an XML file is an error; it must be
escaped as '&amp;'.  That is why you are seeing 'brad&amp;bill'.  Is there
some reason why you think this is a problem, or are you just examining XML
with your eyeballs?

I was wondering if anyone can help me with what should be a simple issue: I
need to output an '&' in my XML file, but have been only able to do this by
escaping it like &amp;. This means that my output is brad&amp;bill rather
than brad&bill. Can someone please help me get this result using a
validating parser?
