I'm trying to set up an adjustment to a dataset and get the following error:

The data files could not be loaded due to the following errors:

File: thing_adjustments.dat (line 74) - Unrecognized special token following '&'
One or more timing errors were identified. Please review the timing report and correct the errors. You can access the report under the 'Develop' menu or by clicking this link.
Here's my code, line 74 is the <fieldval field="adjCandid" line:

    name="Trait - Good"
    description="Select this adjustment to add a Good Trait.">
    <fieldval field="adjUsePick" value="0"/>
    <fieldval field="adjCandid" value="TraitCat.Good & !TraitCat.Gadget"/>
    <tag group="AdjustShow" tag="Menu"/>
    <tag group="Helper" tag="UserAdjust"/>
    <tag group="InPlay" tag="PermOK"/>
    <tag group="InPlay" tag="TempOK"/>
    <eval phase="Setup" priority="8000">
      <before name="Calc trtFinal"/><![CDATA[
      if (tagis[Helper.Activated] <> 0) then
According to the Wiki, the value= syntax should be ok. Both TraitCat.Good and TraitCat.Gadget are valid tags. If I remove "& !TraitCat.Gadget" it works fine.


What am I not doing right?

Inside a <![CDATA[[ ]]> block, you can use & by itself. In a text section you need to use "TraitCat.Good &amp; !TraitCat.Gadget".

This is why I prefer to use the editor to edit this sort of thing - there, you can type in what you want it to say, and HL will handle the details of how XML works for you.

Thanks Mathias! I've done enough XML at work that I should have caught that!
