Look up XML entities, like &gt; (read '&' 'g' 't' ';')

You may just need the missing semicolon. I'm not sure whether &#X; accepts
dec/oct/hex for X. I'd assume it does. --DD

Subject: Hex character escaping.

Can I use the "&#x<hex number>" format to escape characters when I specify
values in Ant?
For example I need to have this executed:

<pathconvert targetos="windows" pathsep="&#xA" property ="build.list"

In other words instead of the default OS path separator I need a line-feed
(#xA). When run this produces an "Illegal hexadecimal character reference"
error. I also tried to escpae the letter "A" in an <echo
message="...&#x41..."/> task but it yelded the same result.
