How to escape special characters in the address data (like ampersand &) in XML format for PLIF (file-20)?
Encoding the ampersand as & will work:
<z304-address-1>Smith & Miller</z304-address-1>
If the characters are not correctgly encoded the following error message might be displayed when customer tries to upload xml PLIF file:
"/exlibris/aleph/u21_x/xxx50/scratch/plif_130909_133132.txt:27: parser error : xmlParseEntityRef: no name
<z304-address-2>Development & Reform Commission hostel,</z304-address-2>"
