XMLP tripping over javascript &&

Reported by Nate | March 31st, 2009 @ 11:38 AM | in 1.0 Release

this is a problem when parsing and loading inline javascript.

the XMLP parser tries to interpret any javascript operator starting with & as an xml entity, and chokes, spitting out an error when encountering it. the document is still attempted to be loaded, though, and the inline js is truncated when written to a file, resulting in another error when the interpreter tries to load the shortened file.

there are 3 operators in javascript that start with an ampersand. &, &=, &&. I'm not quite sure about the best way to patch this.
