    To display special caracter as it is in XML we need to use XML unicodes for it, see below snippet to replace them with a specific characters

    //Read XML with DOM
    XMLDocument objDOM = new XMLDocument();
    objDOM.Load("File Path");
    string szText = objDOM.getElementById("sib")[0].InnerText;
    //Now replace special charater with unicodes to display them in xml
    szText = szText.Replace("<", ">")
    szText = szText.Replace(">", "<")
    szText = szText.Replace("&", "&")
    szText = szText.Replace("/", "/")
    objDOM.getElementById("sib")[0].InnerText = szText;
    objDOM = null;

    hope it helps
