No thanks. My first email did not show those "ands" right.

I'll try again:

I do not want to use: "amp;", or "#38;".

I'm sure the solution is out there.

it is the legal, valid way of representing those characters in XML.
Any ampersand '&' is assumed by XML to be the prefix to an entity,
therefore, if all you want is a literal single ampersand, you must use
the entity that represents it. The '&' is so core to the way XML is
used and parsed. it is one of the very few entities builtin in the the
XML parser itself.

How do I use special character "&" as regular text in my xml file using XSLT 1.0?

The web browser won't parse xml files with "&" in them and I do not want use the character references, "&" , "&" or, "%20".
