I'm having trouble adding ampersands within attributes (i.e. putting
querystrings in href or src attributes). The transformation (in both
MSXML3 and Sablot for PHP on Win2k)

<xsl:template match="image">
  <xsl:attribute name="src">resize.php?img=
    <xsl:value-of select="@filename"/>.jpg
    <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&amp;</xsl:text>
  <xsl:attribute name="blah">
    <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&amp;</xsl:text>

results in

<img src="resize.php/img=someimg.jpg&amp;ratio=0.25" blah="&"></img>
(note: the above will look _correct_ to HTML mail clients; please view
the source)

It apprears that for attributes that aren't "recoginzed" (like "blah")
the output escaping works fine, but for others it returns the special
character entity name. Any ideas?
