You posted your email to the wrong address: it should be saxon-help@lists.sourceforge.net

If your file contains an & that should be & then it is not an XML file, which means that you cannot process it using XML tools such as XSLT and XQuery. You need to correct it using non-XML tools, treating it as a plain text file. It's hard to do that systematically unless you have very precise knowledge of what changes need to be made, for example how to identify the & characters that need to be changed. It's much better to fix the software that is generating bad XML in the first place.
