That's exactly how it's supposed to work. In HTML, you must use & or
some other escape for the character. It ***will*** display as the "&" sign,
which seems to be what you want. Example:
<html>This is an & sign</html>
Load that into a browser and it will display the "&" sign just fine. It
will NOT display "&". Of course, if you look at the file with a text
editor you will see "&", but it will display as you want.
In a url within an HTML attribute, you also must use &, as people have
been telling you. It will function correctly as the target of a hyperlink.
