You are right that it should be "&" in HTML, but the XSLT page is in XML.  It 
is only translated to HTML by the XSLT engine's serializer, when you specify 
an <xsl:output method="html"/> tag.  The engine doesn't copy the text 
literally; it first parses the XSLT page using a normal XML parser, and then 
serializes the parsed text according to the output method and encoding.

But you've figured this out by now :)
