XML Parsing in IS 6.1 SP2

Hello All,

I am getting an XML doc as an input from this service.

pub.xml:xmlNodeToDocument. The issue I am facing is that, the source XML contains “&” ampersand symbol in the XML data.

This “&” in the XML data throws error when parsed in target tables. Can anyone suggest how to handle the “&” present in the XML data? so that when we insert it into the target tables, the XML parser does not fail at the “&” symbol.

& is special character like <.
Use Entity to define the ampersand. The definition is &

Thanks Kerni, for your reply.
can you please tell me in some detail, or point to some reference, where and How can I define this Entity ?
