That's exactly how it's supposed to work.  In HTML, you must use &amp; or
some other escape for the character.  It ***will*** display as the "&" sign,
which seems to be what you want.  Example:

<html>This is an &amp; sign</html>

Load that into a browser and it will display the "&" sign just fine.  It
will NOT display "&amp;". Of course, if you look at the file with a text
editor you will see "&amp;", but it will display as you want.

In a url within an HTML attribute, you also must use &amp;,  as people have
been telling you.  It will function correctly as the target of a hyperlink.
