Yes but not in the way you want it to (see answer above).

No. the usual way is to encode non-valid sequences in BASE64. If you have an
XML tag that may contain ESC etc. then I would add an attribute to it to
signal the receiver that it has been encoded E.g.

<MyStuff encoding="Text">12456</MyStuff>


<MyStuff encoding'BASE64">zAbDc=</MyStuff>

can both be handled by the receiver.

That's OK.
