I have this handler to translate some special XML characters:

FUNCTION getXMLFixed p
     replace "&" WITH "&" in p
     replace "<" WITH "<" in p
     replace ">" WITH ">" in p
     replace "'" WITH "'" in p
     replace ""&" WITH quote in p
     replace "&#xA9;" WITH "©" in p
     replace "&#x2117;" WITH "®" in p
     replace "&#x2122;" WITH "™" in p
     replace "â" WITH "a" in p
     replace "(C)" WITH "©" in p
     return p
END getXMLFixed
