To be honest I have never seen (&) (le;)
Can you do (&) (lt;) = ?
Also, I thought you needed a 'select' term.
I am doing the ampersand sign (&) followed by "le" and followed by a ";"
If I give that string, the post says it is <=.
Why does parsing components.xml give an error ?
1) POST YOUR EXCEPTIONS and stack traces.
2) Use code tags in your posts.
