 Just to put the last nail in this coffin, I hope, I tried it out.  I
changed an "&" to a "%26" in the url query string in an anchor element.  The
site I tried it on, run on an Apache server, returned an error, while it
accepted it correctly when I restored the "&".  This surprises me, but there
it is.

Both IE5.5 and NS 4.73 on Windows accepted a plain '&' in the url string in
the <a> element - they didn't require the &amp; .
