The xml trace output does not escape the xml strings, producing invalid xml.

I fixed mine by modifying mupfd\fitz\res_text.c  (although there is another
place which has the error, but it didn't effect my usage)

fz_debugtext prints the character with 
printf("<g ucs=\"%c\" ..., test->els[i].ucs, ...

I replaced that with 
printf("<g ucs=\"%s\" ..., GetXmlCharacter( test->els[i].ucs), ...

and this really fast utility function:

const char * GetXmlCharacter (char ucs){
    static const char * strAmpersand  = "&amp;";
    static const char * strApostrophe = "&apos;";
    static const char * strGreater    = "&gt;";
    static const char * strLess       = "&lt;";
    static const char * strQuote      = "&quot;";
    static char unescaped [2];
    int bFirst = 1;
    if (bFirst){
        bFirst = 0;
        memset(unescaped, '\0', sizeof(unescaped));

    switch (ucs){
        case '&':
            return strAmpersand;
        case '\'':
            return strApostrophe;
        case '>':
            return strGreater;
        case '<':
            return strLess;
        case '\"':
            return strQuote;
                unescaped[0] = ucs;
                return unescaped;
