The version here should be compatible with the latest version of Hpricot code. Ruby on Rails will automatically use String#fast_xs from either Hpricot or this gem version with the bundled Builder package. String#fast_xs is an almost exact translation of Sam Ruby's original implementation (String#to_xs), but it does escape """ (which is an optional, but all parsers are able ot handle it. XML::Builder as packaged in Rails 2.0 will be automatically use String#fast_xs instead of String#to_xs available.
