struts-config.mxl problem!

I have just started using struts and have come across a problem with my struts-config file. The probelm is when i have an '&' symbol in my forward path i get an javax.servlet.jsp.Jspexception:can't get the definitions factory from context. e.g.
<action path="/loadRoles"
<forward name="success"
Without the '&' symbol every thing works fine but i this doesn't help as i need to pass across some parameters. Does anyone have any ideas?
Help would be much appreciated!

Did you mean "&amp;"?. The struts-config.xml file isn't the only resource where you have to escape the "infamous 5" (& < > " ' ) !

And I see the JavaRanch graemlins like to add their $.02 worth just trying to say that!

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
