[squeak-dev] XMLTokenizer problem with ampersand

I guess this will not help you, but a standalone ampersand is not
valid XML (it is the leader for entities, if you want to have a
literal ampersand in the text, the markup must be &), hence I
would not expect any XML tokenizer or parser implementation to accept

HTML is more relaxed about this, so a standalone amapersand is valid,
but you would need some kind of HTMLTokenizer and I do not know
whether there is such thing for Squeak. Anyone else knows one?

Best regards
