I'm a total neophyte at XML, but for some reason I'd have turned the
example into:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<assign><name>foo</name><value>123</value></assign>
<assign><name>bar</name><value>456</value></assign>
<assign><name>zoo</name><value>la&quot;lala</value></assign>

Should be much simpler to parse as you aren't dynamically creating XML
<> entities, you only have three such "assign", "name", and "value".
