Solution to not being able to use copyright symbol in an Umbraco Macro

Was writing some XSLT for an Umbraco site recently, needed a copyright block in the footer so thought i’d just use the standard

©

syntax to add the copyright symbol, ©. When I tried to save the file, I got an error that the xml was invalid.

Turns out that © is not allowed so I used the numeric value instead

©

which works a treat.

I wonder how many times this has caught people out!
