Now I see. I've reported this to rdoc's tracker [1] along with a patch:

Index: lib/rdoc/generator/html.rb
===================================================================
--- lib/rdoc/generator/html.rb	(revision 192)

     res = []
     collection.sort.each do |f|
       if f.document_self
-        res << { "href" => f.path, "name" => f.index_name }
+        res << { "href" => f.path, "name" => CGI.escapeHTML(f.index_name) }
       end
     end


i.e.

- open C:\ruby\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\gems\rdoc-2.2.1\lib\rdoc\generator\html.rb
- go to line 256
- add "CGI.escapeHTML("
- close the parenthesis

Jano
