Make RDoc escape inner element strings

Is there a way to make RDoc use the html entities of stuff like:

<a href="classes/ActiveSupport/TimeZone.html#M001007"><=>
(ActiveSupport::TimeZone)</a><br />

The xml parser im using is getting confused by the '<' '>' strings
inside elements... wondering if you can make Rdoc use their char
reference entity instead?

What version rdoc do you have? It seems that
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveSupport/TimeZone.html has it
correct.
Check with "rdoc --version", update with "gem install rdoc", latest is 2.2.1.

I updated to 2.2.1 but it still wont escape the < > characters in the
fr_method_index.html file (which I need to parse), only in the actual
documentation.

Now I see. I've reported this to rdoc's tracker [1] along with a patch:

Index: lib/rdoc/generator/html.rb
