Every other time this FAQ comes around, people answering it challenge the 
list to provide examples of browsers that mishandle URIs that are written 
in an HTML document in proper, & = &amp; syntax. No one ever responds!

Can you give us *specific* examples of which browser/platform versions
have trouble with escaped ampersands in URIs appearing in HTML documents?

This doesn't change the fact that the browser is most definitely wrong
if it doesn't translate the &amp; as it reads the HTML, but I'd at least 
like to see why this is such an issue with people.
