The same issue arises when one uses XQuery server-side code together
with XQuery client-side code: either the XQuery application server has
to serialise the content of the script tag as a CDATA section instead
of escaping special characters, or the browser/plug-in should decode
entity references before executing the script (in the latter case, the
query is not easy to read).
