Report Layout converts & into %26amp;

When using APEX 4.2.1 with the Instance Setting: Report Printing: Print Server = Oracle APEX Listener.  I use an after processing branch call to PRINT_REPORT=REPORT_PDF.  The Report Query for REPORT_PDF has Source Query: "select 'A & B' DESCRIPTION from dual" which uses Report Layout "LAYOUT_7".

When I choose Output Format="XML" for the Report Query, the description field is returned as 'A & B' which is rendered as 'A & B' in browser.

When I choose Output Format="PDF" for the Report Query, the description field is returned as 'A %26amp; B' which is rendered as 'A %26amp; B' in Adobe Reader.

How do I get the Adobe Reader to output 'A & B'?

 

Thank you,

Ryan
