No, I don't believe that is the case. "&" is what he needs, unless
you are talking about the character in the actual HTML. If you are
writing it out in a php string or something, you should use the
actual character &. ie. myurl.com?hello=hi&hello=hithere. You don't
want hello=hi&amphello=hithere OR, your second key will be 'amphello'
not 'hello'.

Um, Scott, the only reason I caught that so quickly is because *I*
have done it too! ;)
