Sitemap.xml giving errors for & and &

I have sitemap.xml for my site... and have some urls with '&' in it.. Urls with '&' are thrown as errors by xml... I tried replacing '&' by 'amp;' but that is also throwing error as that also is not accepted.

There are some errors that are shown in google webmaster where it has replaced '&' to '%26'.

Please help me in solving this problem..

Thanks for the answer...
I tried using non-alphanumeric characters. But the problem is.... when I replace '&' by '&' our sql injection throws an error on ';'.. So i am not able to replace it to '&'.

Is there any other way?

Please can anyone tell me the answer to the above question or suggest me any solution over SQL injection script that is being used to restrict database hacking?
