Do you want to output the escaped string, or do you want to do further
processing on it? If you want to output it, you can use the standard
javax.xml.transform.stream.StreamResult, and report your unescaped
string as a characters event e.g,

TransformerHandler th = SAXTransformerFactory.newTransformerHandler();
th.setResult (new StreamResult (System.out));
char[] c = new char[unescapedString.length()];
unescapedString.getChars(0, (c.length-1), c, 0);
th.characters (c, 0, c.length);

I skipped a few steps, but this should point you to a possible
