XML Rendering problem

Hi all,

I am not sure if this is the right mailinglist to send this problem to. If
not, it would be great if you could point me to the correct one.

So here is my problem:

The following XSL file does not work, rendering it with either the IBM nor
the SUN xml parsers (either using Xalan or Saxon as XSL renderer):

----------------------------------------- stylesheet start
<xsl:template match="text()">

<xsl:template match="image">
    <a href="/NASApp/portal/home?tmpl=browse&url=next">
        <xsl:value-of select="imageurl"/>

----------------------------------------- stylesheet end

The problem lies in the line with the href parameter. The parser
interprets '&url' as an html command and wants to have a trailing ';'. It does not
understand that the '&' separates two parameters in the URL. 
In my opinion that is a serious bug in all the parsers i tested so far.
