You are right.  This worked.  I was thinking that somehow because it was a part of the href, that it needed to be & instead of &amp; to show up correctly.  
Thanks again for the help!

Yes you have, believe me :).  This is a FAQ.  In XML, "&" is a reserved 
character, used to begin a character or entity reference.  So, to output a 
real "&", you have to escape it with the character reference for that 
character: use "&amp;".

I suggest that in addition to reading the XSLT specification, you also go read 
the XML specification at <>.  Who knows what new 
tricks or insight you can learn.  The specification will also tell you about 
needing to use "&lt;" instead of "<" in text or attribute values.
