I am trying to insert the following JS in the head section of our template and this is the message I receive:

An error occurred during editing: The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference.

I have tried attaching the JS through a format block and Xhtml block with the <!--#START-CODE code which affects other JS and CSS.
Any other ideas?

JS file attached also:

    The problem is that your template must be valid XHTML and Cascade's parser sees that & as an entity reference. What you need to do is add CDATA tags inside your script tags but you can't just add regular CDATA tags either. Here is what I use:

    <script type="text/javascript">
        JS Code here

    Hope that helps,
