Josh, the document() function when passed one string parameter
interprets that string as URI (that is a URL or URN). You do not escape
characters in a URI using the character entity references defined in
HTML 4.01 or XML 1.0 (silly goose).

In a URI, a character is escaped as a sequence of hexadecimal byte
values, each of the form %HH. An ampersand is represented in a URI with
the sequence '%26' (without the single quote marks). That should work
for you, but if not, tell me what operating system you are working with.
