    Using Special Characters

    Because some special characters may cause parsing errors, Ex Libris recommends the use of XML-based entities in mapping tables. For example, instead of using the special characters (such as an apostrophe shown in the following line):
    Source Code – Gruen'sche Bibliothek
    Use the following entities as shown in bold:
    Source Code – Gruen'sche Bibliothek
    The following table lists the recommended XML-based entities:
    Using Special Characters
    Special Character Unicode Value XML-Based Entity
    " (double quote)
    (U+0022)
    "
    & (ampersand)
    (U+0026)
    &
    ' (single quote)
    (U+0027)
    '
    < (less than sign)
    (U+003C)
    <
    > (greater than sign)
    (U+003E)
    >
