Series autocreate on Schedule page can't handle xml characters <>&

Steps to reproduce

Steps to reproduce:
1. Schedule a recording with valid values
2. create a new series with and & in the title eg "bob & jane"
3. click schedule

Actual Results:

WARN (DublinCoreCatalogImpl$DublinCoreParser:850) - Fatal error parsing dublincore catalog: The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference.
2014-04-28 05:03:47 ERROR (AbstractFaultChainInitiatorObserver:101) - Error occurred during error handling, give up!

Expected Results:

Scheduled recorded against newly created series "bob & jane"

Workaround (if any):

Create the Series manually via the Add Series button on the Series tab. You can now pick it in the scheduler via autocomplete and the recording will be scheduled.

Note that is the series is called "<bob" it's name does not appear in the series listing. This seem related to a comment Kevin Chan made in
