Hello Michael,

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).

Kind regards,
