I thought the problem might have been with the '&' character in the
parameter strings. To be compatible, the actual link needs to contain
'&amp;' instead of just '&':

Good: <a href="http://www.test.com/script.asp?Parm1=ABC&amp;Parm2=DEF">

Bad: <a href="http://www.test.com/script.asp?Parm1=ABC&Parm2=DEF">
(Results in 'general entity "Parm2" not defined' etc.)
