Tobi-

I think this is where this issue got confusing. He's implying (I believe)
parsing an XML document that will be transformed (within the program) into
some other format. For example, converting an XML document into an
entry(ies) in a MySQL database. Obviously, the MySQL database wouldn't need
XML-encoded characters, and therefore, it would probably be preferred   to
have just ' " or &, instead of ' " and &.

At least, I think that's what he means. ;)

You mean using the XML writer to produce '...'?

I don't understand.
