I have noticed that the comments with character '&' won't be generated in the help file.
Is this known? Is it on MS XML generation or on sandcastle?
I did not found any notice in the SHFB documentation or in the discussions.

XML comments files are like any other XML file.  Special characters such as &, <, and > must be encoded (&amp;, &lt;, &gt;).

I would expect that for < and >, but I have not for '&'.
Thanks for your help.
