>>The XML in question comes from my code so complaints are typically ignored.

:LOL: Okay, so you are saying you produced the XML in the first place? Why don't you clean the path first then -- not only easier, but more efficient than getting some module to parse the bad xml afterward.

If that field can really contain anything you can't just swap ' for " as a delimiter, and CDATA has the same delimiter issue. That is the crux of the issue: you need a delimiter, either ' or " or CDATA. Choose one (IMO: stick with ') and replace that delimiter in the data before you create the xml.

    You also need to replace & with &.
