Using various punctuation in ALFS profiles can be difficult, as it's XML 
and the XML standards don't allow much outside of the most common 
characters. As Anderson mentioned there are ways to do it using entity 
references, but it's not easy to maintain that way and it's not obvious 
when reading the profile what it actually is trying to do (especially 
when a single command string has &gt, &lt, &apos and other entities in it).
