NCX file issue with comma's

We ran into an interesting Problem in our NCX file the other day.
We have 13 locations in our NCX file the Copyright being the last navigation point.
We would generate the epub file and run it thru all the verifications and it would pass fine. When we would view it in kindle previewer we never saw the "cover" showing up as a Navigation point. We knew the problem was some place in the NCX file but we could not locate it we would remove the copyright from the NCX and the cover would show.
See the NCX below of the original issue

<navLabel><text>Copyright</text></navLabel>
<content src="xhtml/copyright.html"/></navPoint>
</navMap>
</ncx>
What we discovered is that having
Commas in the Nav Label would mess it up.
<navLabel><text>Batchcombe, Wessex, 1628</text></navLabel>
we changed the commas to entities and it worked fine.
What i can't understand is why removing the Copyright from the navlabel worked as well.
What are comma's doing to the file in the NCX and why will it not error out?

Thank you
Matt

I've moved this thread to the Mobi workshop forum - you're much more likely to get an answer here than in the Kindle forum.

I really hope you haven't got monstrosities such as "comma's" in your actual book .
