Change a binary file whose filename contains an ampersand, then view the 
commitdiff page in gitweb.

Firefox refuses to display the commitdiff page because "XML Parsing Error: not 
well-formed". (Other pages like "commit" and "tree" work fine when showing the 
same file)

Is this a known bug?  A webserver configuration thing?

Webserver here is NGINX. First 5 lines of each gitweb page are like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 
1.0 Strict//EN" "";><html 
xmlns=""; xml:lang="en-US" lang="en-US"><!-- git web 
interface version, (C) 2005-2006, Kay Sievers <>, 
Christian Gierke --><!-- git core binaries version -->
