Ampersand (&) in Project title breaks timeline RSS feed

Reported by: Ian Leader <ian_dot_leader_at_line_dot_co_dot_uk> Owned by: daniel

If there is an ampersand in the Trac project title, it is not escaped in the RSS timeline feed, and consequently the feed is not well-formed XML.

This may well be the case in other RSS feeds, but I changed the title of our project before I thought to check.

Have attached diff to source:/trunk/#803 to fix this ticket, and to fix the same problem in the report RSS feed.

Took the approach of adding project.name.rss value, and updating the templates, as this seemed to be the aproach taken to item-based RSS kludges in [803].

the hdf.setValue is in core.py - this seemed the most sensible place, as this problem will occur in pretty much any RSS feed, but if there is a better place, please let me know.

Applied in [825]. Thanks for the patch, Ian! Escaping entities might be a bigger issue than just RSS, and might become apparent later.
