Well, Saxon favours the 'B&O' version. So there's a two to one situation
against NeoCore. My gut feeling is that Saxon and Jaxen is correct; XPath
expressions are not XML, so the markup character escape rules of XML does
not apply, unless the XPATH expression is contained in an XML document--but
I haven't studied the XPath spec deep enough to really be sure.
