Just an update on the solution I found to this problem. To get around
this problem I was experiencing on Windows I ended up using URLEncode
for all values that I added to the xml tree I created. After using
revXMLText to get the text file I used URLDecode on the final xml text
and everything seems to be working fine. I did have to replace "&"
with "&" after doing this though.
