Strange xml parsing behavior (at least to me!!!)

If you load an xml document with the dom (I tried it with MSXML and System.Xml.XmlDocument) that has the node content set to > (greater than) the value is escaped by the parser.

If you specify an xml (containing the greater than sign) as the node content it isn't escaped.

So if you have

<root>></root> you'll get <root>&gt;</root>

if you have

 <root>><foo /></root> you'll get (the same) <root><foo /></root>

Strange!
