Hi George,

To include an ampersand (&) in your text, it needs to be escaped as a 
character entity, e.g. &amp;  This applies to URL attributes (href, src) as 
well as content.

   <a href=
   Warning unescaped &amp; or unknown &amp; entity "&amp; src"
   <img border="0"
        alt="Messenger notice"

take it easy,
