Stings within XML tags need to be properly formatted. Without proper formatting, a XML Parsing Error is likely to occur. This tutorial demonstrates how to encode strings properly for XML using Python.
Special characters like the ampersand (&), greater-than (>), and less-than (<) will cause a XML Parsing Error if not
formatted correctly. Python has a built-in module for handling special characters for XML. To use it, import the
escape function from the xml module and wrap you strings with the function as shown below.
