in the api you are using the input param values are passed as strings, they
are not parsed by an xml parser, so & means & and <hello>a</hello> is a
string of length 17 characters.

using d-o-e is almost always the wrong thing to do.
here you surely just want <xsl:value-of select="$heading"/> and pass in
the value of the heading as a string.
