Hi Scott,

Thx. You are right. I forgot the serializer. I had to write one because the
standard one was not applicable for this project.
You pointed me in the right direction. Thanks

How is the message encoded (SOAP, XML literal or XMI)?  When using SOAP
serialization, the default serializer for the String type uses
org.apache.soap.Utils#cleanString, which would convert a bare '&' to
If literal XML is used, the XML being serialized seems to be invalid.
