	Regardless of what Amaya is doing with it, this
	is invalid and relies on browser error recovery
	for unknown entities.  The correct version is:

	<IMG HEIGHT="16" WIDTH="12"
	SRC="/cgi-bin/general/counter.pl?from=books&amp;num=8&amp;roman=1">

	Note that the HTML spec reccomends that CGI scripts which
	are likely to be used with simulated forms URLs should
	accept ; as equivalent to & to avoid the need for 
	replacing the &s with entities.
