Ok. Sounds like you're covering that (and you may want to worry about 
other XML entities - &amp; etc.). Your problem domain may be small 
enough to require such a solution, but once you have to worry about 
character encodings and the like then you'll run into other issues. Butn 
like I say, it's all dependent on what you're trying to achieve 
(tactical vs.strategic and so on)
