if you make an assignmet to an attribute and the value you assign has special chars, it makes a difference if the attribute is new or not.

the best way would be if there was no need for the htmlspecialchars function call.

Reproduce code:
echo "<body>\n" ;

error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT) ;

$xml = simplexml_load_string('<xml></xml>');

$str = "abc & def" ;

$xml["a1"] = "" ;
$xml["a1"] = htmlspecialchars($str,ENT_NOQUOTES) ;

$xml["a2"] = htmlspecialchars($str,ENT_NOQUOTES) ;

$xml["a3"] = "" ;
$xml["a3"] = $str ;

$xml["a4"] = $str ;

echo "<xmp>\n" ;
echo "str: $str \n" ;
echo "a1: correct: {$xml["a1"]} \n" ;
echo "a2: wrong:   {$xml["a2"]} \n" ;
echo "a3: wrong:   {$xml["a3"]} \n" ;
echo "a4: correct: {$xml["a4"]} \n" ;
echo $xml->asXML() ;
echo "</xmp>\n" ;
echo "</body>\n" ;
