No, the = should not be eaten, although it should not be a terminator - you
should have &amp;=5 (the standard terminator is a semi-colon)

  You're saying that &amp=5 is interpreted as &=5
  
  Is it really interpreted as                 &5
  
  since the = acts as a terminator and is eaten thereby?  I want to make sure
  I understand this.
