JDOM api and dealing with XML 1.0 non-compliant chars

The setText and addContent method of org.jdom.Element throw an exception
when given an illegal char (non compliant XML 1.0 char). By illegal I don't
mean <, > (those are escapable chars not necessarily illegal).

Is there a lib out there that escapes these chars

The java.util.regex package is convenient for finding and "escaping" characters in Strings that need to be XML compliant.
