|Ampersands. HTMLencode, or CDATA?|
a choice with nuances

CDATA in attributes is forbidden.
Ampersands in attributes are forbidden.
Ampersands anywhere except CDATA are forbidden.
So if I have data that potentially contains an ampersand, I have two options:
<book title="Withnail & I"/>
<book title="Griffin & Sabine"/>
<book title="Love & Marriage"/>
<book><title><![CDATA[Withnail & I]]></title></book>
<book><title><![CDATA[Griffin & Sabine]]></title></book>
<book><title><![CDATA[Love & Marriage]]></title></book>
which would you choose?

I use the first method which works for me without any problems.
