After performing even more tests I have found that the documentation on your
site is correct.  When I use simple pure html cases I can demonstrate the
proper functionality.

The reason I was having trouble was because I used a server based contral that
rendered the html for me, and this control was encoding my url in a way that I
was not aware of.  Here is what it was doing. 

 <img src="foo.cgi?chapter=1&amp;section=2&amp;copy=3&amp;lang=en"/>

was actually getting rendered as

<img src="foo.cgi?chapter=1&amp%3Bsection=2&amp%3Bcopy=3&amp%3Blang=en">

Sorry for troubling you.
