CDATA elements in XSLT

cdata elements
Hi everybody,

I am using a xslt transformation on an xml file which has this structure
(... this is only a subset):

xml file:
   <PoolName>America &amp; Brownie</PoolName>
   <PoolName>Jiraffe &amp; Breton</PoolName>

xslt file:
<xsl:template match="Wells">
 <element no_chars="?">
   <xsl:value-of select="PoolName/text()"/>

The question is; How can I escape the & sign from the xml file to the xml
output so I can write to the xml output: "America & Brownie" instead of
having: "America &amp; Brownie".

I also need to count on the number of characters for "America & Brownie" and
not from "America &amp; Brownie".

I have read about CDATA but doesn't seems to be the better solution. Could
someone give me some advise on this ? Thank you.
