The error is caused most likely by the illegal char "<" and ">" to the xml entity

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_XML_and_HTML_character_entity_references

you can give a try with

<dc:description>test &amp;lt; &amp;lt;  &amp;gt; &amp;gt; test</dc:description>

hope it works

Hi all
i try encode under XML specification(How i can insert HTML in forum?)
And in time creating workitem the text area between symbols (&lt and &gt) and symbols themselves were removed.
