I think that you've missed the point - the ampersand is required to seperate
out the parameters - not as part of the value of a parameter.  You'd use %26
if you wanted to pass through an ampersand as a value, but not for
delimiting the parameters.



would be used to pass through parameters meal and pub with values "roast"
and "dog & duck"
