From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.9 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030314

Description of problem:
The formbuilder throws an exception if the user enters '&' in one of the  fields
for adding a widget to a form. THis is because the formbuilder stores these
attributes as an XML string, but doesn't take care to escape reserved characters.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a Form item
2. Add a Text field
3. Enter 'Hello & World' in the 'label' field.

Actual Results:  Exception is thrown

Expected Results:  No exception is thrown
