This is a bug in Gabber ... having litteral '>'s in XML documents is 
valid (but not very common). Read section 2.4 of the XML specification 

The right angle bracket (>) may be represented using the string 
"|&gt;|", and must, for compatibility 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-xml-19980210#dt-compat>, be escaped using 
"|&gt;|" or a character reference when it appears in the string "|]]>|" 
in content, when that string is not marking the end of a CDATA section 

This is just "may" ... not "must".
