> I guess I should quote < and & in stuff I send into paragraphs?
Yes, that's the easy way. There is a library function to do it
>>> import xml.sax.saxutils
>>> xml.sax.saxutils.escape("Medicine & Dentistry")
'Medicine & Dentistry'
> How about stuff I'm putting on with canv.drawString?
No, that is not treated as XML. The ONLY places where
input is treated as XML are Paragraphs and Preformatted
