You need to check your character level encoding throughout,
end to end.
Once it's in XML, &amp; => & etc.
If you want alpha, then use unicode character level encoding,
e.g. & # x 0 3 b 1 ;  (spaced in case it is messed up)

Once in XML that alpha as a character entity is just as valid as any
other character.
Prior to that, it's up to you.
