how to upload a txt file having specific charaters like "&" to confluence page?

i have a .txt file where a line contain an characters "&", when i invoke  "HttpPost pageRequest = new HttpPost(pageUrl)" to do  java rest API call to update the .txt file to the page, it throws error as: {"statusCode":400,"data":{"authorized":false,"valid":true,"errors":[]},"message":"Error parsing xhtml"}  and i can't upload the .txt file to the confluence page, but if i removed the "&" it works fine.

Since confluence page content needs Storage Format, how can i change it to Storage Format in order pass the HttpPost?    Thanks alot.
