I saw a post on StackOverflow yesterday from someone making the same
recommendation; he supplied the Python code, and it output the XML without
bothering to escape special characters. No wonder we see such a lot of bad XML
when people try to process it without using the proper tools.

XSLT is ideally suited for this task.
