If you are being passed data that contains a raw '&' character that hasn't been converted to '&' then you aren't being passed valid XML and no XML parser will be able to deal with it.

You should ask your data provider to fix their processes so that they _do_ sent you valid XML.

    Dave and guys,

    I finally found the problem, it's not only '&' but also '<' and '"'. I don't know how many of these characters left and I'm still keep looking as the original data is about 300MB.

    Thanks all for your tolerant help! Nan
