Section 3.3 of that rfc indicates that ; is reserved in URLs - so I'm guessing there's another solution.
Obviously you can wrap all your URLs up in a nice CDATA structure - but that seems ridiculous. A quick googling perusal confirms what I expected: http://www.biglist.com/lists/xsl-list/archives/200101/msg00510.html "The XML that you see in a file is just a *serialisation* of a node tree. In the node tree, entity references are substituted for whatever they reference." Which means either the browser should automagically translate the & - or it should otherwise be translated before the page is rendered. How exactly are you tacking the SID onto the end of these URLs? If it's done by php automatically then you shouldn't be having problems at all at the xhtml level, if you're doing it manually - then manually add &SID=$wherever_sid_is_stored onto the urls. Of course, I'm probably oversimplifying a problem you've fought hours on, so all I can say is I hope the link and its thread shines some light.
