Before posting, I tried a mall REXML app that simply read in and spit 
back some XML< and the ampersands were fine.  I believe there is a way t 
tell REXML to not do certain character escaping (or to autoescape text 
when added) though, and perhaps there is something in Nitro doing this.

If no one knows offhand, I might be able to take a look.
