Ampersand not permitted in AttValue

I encountered a problem in XML 1.0: the AttValue definition specifies 
that the value of an attribute must be either a reference or a character 
other than "<" and "&"; but the ampersand "&" is a permitted, and 
commonly used character in URIs, with this constriction I can't put some 
types of links in a xml or xhtml document.
