Some links to cgi scripts end with :  ?var1=this&var2=that
This makes the SGML description for HTML4.0 thinks that this &va is a some
kind of special character entity which it isn't.
So, how do I make a link to a cgi script while making clear that &va is not
a character? Won't using &amp break the cgi script?
