How To Handle "&" (ampersand) symbol extracted from data using Etext template

We have "&" symbol used in Supplier names.

Ex: ABC & Co.

Oracle seeded report would generate xml data with as below:

<Name>ABC & Co</Name>

We are using eText template to display supplier name. But we are seeing below error. 

XML-20201: (Fatal Error) Expected name instead of  .


Since "&" is a restricted character, XML output data is not getting parsed when we have supplier names with "&" symbol.

Is there any option to handle characters like "&" using RTF templates?

Howdy, Stranger!
