   Wrap the characters in <![CDATA[...]]>, like this:

   <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">

   <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!-- 
	   ... foo & bar ...


Beware though, that if you do this you are not outputting a SCRIPT
element but the characters < S C R I P T  thus this stylesheet only
works in a context in which you are linearising the result tree as an
XML file, and then re-parsing it as XML (or HTML in this case).
It wouldn't (or shouldn't) work in an embedded context where the
result tree of the stylesheet is being directly accessed, eg by the
layout engine of a browser.
