To follow-up to my own message:  I've just read that the following
characters are declared special in XML 1.0:  <,>,&, and '

My parser is choking on a document, which has a ':' in it.  Can I 
count out the problem being because of the ':'?

Thanks again,

Subject: escaping characters

Hey all:

I'm working with a parser that is getting tripped up with a '&' is
is being passed in a desc. field.  

Might anyone have a link/reference that explains which characters
should be handled as "special" and how to best escape them?

Thanks in advance,
