XML: "&" behaves not as expected

Hi all...

We have an XML which contains the text "One word & another word".
It appears on the page as "One word&another word".

We already tried "One word & another word", the outcome again is "One word&another word".

The XML runs through a lot different scripts/packeges, not all done by us. I want to avoid to find the place where an interpreter has bug.

Question:
Any way to get the character "&" beside the "&"?

Thank you

it sounds like a problem with the white space tho you may need to put a   or   so it reads

"One word & another word"
or
"One word & another word"

this worked fine for me

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<test>
      <test2>One word&#32;&#38;&#32;another word</test2>
</test>

do you have the utf-8 ?

does it matter if its Cdata or does it have to be PCData ?
