Integrating Verisign Secure Seal supplied html into XHTML Seam/JSF application

I have a JBoss Seam application that serves up SSL pages to a secure site.  The application uses XHTML/JSF.  I don't think Seam is relevant for my question.

Our SSL certificate is provided by Verisign - and they provide a 'secured by verisign' html fragment to include in your site that allows user to click-through to check that your site is indeed known by verisign.

I am trying to integrate this raw html into a xhtml page within my Jboss Seam application.  (see http://www.verisign.com/ssl/secured-seal) But when the page is rendered on the server it complains about the embedded <script> tag in the supplied html.  

The offending tag is:
<script src="https://seal.verisign.com/getseal?host_name=secure.mobile-sense.com&size=M&use_flash=YES&use_transparent=YES&lang=en"></script>

When the page is rendered within Jboss I get the following error:
javax.servlet.ServletException: Error Parsing /layout/template.xhtml: Error Traced[line: 67] The reference to entity "size" must end with the ';' delimiter.

It looks like the renderer is interpreting the url query parameters as html that needs to be escaped.  I've tried surrounding the code fragment with a jsf verbatim tag <f:verbatim escape="true" (and false) - but still get the same results.

What is wrong the src attribute on the script tag??

I had tried that - but that didn't work as well - but I then tried replacing & with &#31; and that worked in my environment.

Anyways - I'm now sorted.

Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
