How about enclosing it in CDATA tags?

E.g.,
<echo ....><![CDATA[

]]></echo>

?

Cheers,

OK, this doesn't work because of XML's notion of ignorable
whitespace. We could "fix" that by supporting the xml:space attribute
as described in the XML spec
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-xml-19980210#sec-white-space>, but an
easier solution to the specifc problem is:

<echo file="${classes.dir}/properties/release.txt"
append="true"
message="${line.separator}" />

which will always append the "newline" character appropriate for the
current operating system. Alternatives go along the lines of

<echo file="${classes.dir}/properties/release.txt"
append="true"
message="&#13;&#10;" />

for a carriage-return line-feed sequence.
