XML escape character (&) in writing web services.

Suppose I'm writing a web service:

string TestService()
{
...
}

Currently, a client calling the service will get the result string as (If saving the result string as result.xml and opened in XML browser):
Company & Country

instead of Company & Country.

Do I need to write a line at the end of the service something like this:
RegEx.Replace("&", "&");

What is the best way to deal with the 5 XML escape characters in designing my web services so that my service can be consumed without problems for the web services clients with different platforms?
Thanks!

Check out System.Web.HttpUtility class. There are many useful functions there. It should be HtmlEncode() that you are looking for.
