Oh dear, we are getting all the old chestnuts.

Correct HTML demands that an ampersand in a URL (or anywhere) is escaped
as &_amp;. (without the underscore of course). You can use
disable-output-escaping to generate incorrect HTML if you are really
determined, and every known browser will let you get away with this
error, but why would you want to?
