Yes, sorry, you're right.

The syntax you're trying to generate isn't well-formed XML and therefore XSL
doesn't want to generate it.

There are various work-arounds in SAXON for generating non-well-formed XML
(or should I say, non-XML) - for example it can handle "<%" and "%>" - but
nothing that specifically handles this, other than making the whole output
file "text" in which case you won't get any character escaping at all.

I think the only remedy is to generate something in place of the ampersand,
e.g. ##AMPERSAND##, and then post-process the output file..

I'll think about it for a future version.
