Hello experts,

Can someone tell me how to avoid '&' displaying as &

In the attached code, the column SubCategoryName has a name containing '&' and result is displayed as '&'

I assume it's because of the use of FOR XML PATH(' ').

All the help would be greatly appreciated on how to avoid that.  
SELECT cast(CSC.CategoryName as nvarchar(100)) AS Categories, AppendSubCategories.SubCategoryNames AS SubCategories 
		FROM dbo.CaseStudyCategories CSC 
		CROSS APPLY (SELECT SubCategoryName + '|'  
             FROM dbo.CaseStudySubCategories CSSC
             WHERE CSC.CategoryID = CSSC.CategoryID
             ORDER BY SubCategoryName
             FOR XML PATH(''))AppendSubCategories(SubCategoryNames)
             ORDER BY Categories
