Symptoms

Adding & to the Text field of the Edit Text dialog in Oracle JDeveloper adds extra characters to the XSL file.

2. Select Set Text > Enter Text.
3. In the Edit Text dialog, enter & in the Text field, and click OK.
4. Go to the Source view of the XSL file, and see that an extra amp; is appended.
5.
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="no">& amp; amp;</xsl:text>
