[xquery-talk] escape-uri() not escaping special characters

I am having trouble getting the fn:escape-uri() function to work
properly for a particular uri. I have the following code in a xquery
that parses news information:


for $g in
kCategoryId=", true()), $category))//content


When I run the XQuery, it gives the following error message:


Error on line 6 column 40 of file:/h:/fsmpro/mlb_news.xquery:

  XPST0003: XQuery syntax error in #...35&number=50&rankCategoryId=",#:

    No closing ';' found for entity or character reference


It appears that the special characters in the URI are not being escaped
at all. Is there some other step to getting this to work? Or is there a
problem with the code? I am using saxon engine v8.4.
