PHP API breaks with special characters?

Our PHP API based site broke with no changes to the code! So I debugged and found that special characters break the API. There is *nothing* in the server logs when the error occurs.

 

For example if I press control-s (on windows) and add the special double exclaimation mark character into a field then the PHP site returns:

XML error: Invalid character at line 1

 

When I delete the special character then the PHP API is working fine again.

 

Is there a workaround to this besides trying to caputre and remove every special character from every field?

 

Thanks for any advice.
