XML Parsing Mistakes

My new CareerJournal Headlines interface, has a mistake this morning. Here is the problem:
When I reference any number of manuals at my disposal, the escape sequence/HTML Entity for "&" is provided as -- or . This sequence -- was used -- which I am not currently handling. Based on my manuals, I wanted to ask CareerJournal to stick to the standard. However, a part of the ASCII Chart [shown on the right] that I often provide as reference also uses the shortened version. [I use my offline manuals more often and of course cannot provide them as online references.]

This is a relatively common problem. Here is part of the AOL main screen -- from this morning.

Bare with me while I work out "my" kinks.
