site breaking URLs

The site is breaking the Chowhound search URL in this post:

      Definitely replacing each occurrence of


      with the following characters

      & a m p ;

        Huh... well that's unexpected. The latest upgrade caused a number of such oddities; we'll get on it.

          Any progress?

          The site is still doing the replacement of
          in urls/hyperlinks and it is somewhat irritating when posting links with & in the url as one then goes to the wrong page/default page for the url concerned. This is especially annoying when one is trying to point to a particular post on a website which uses the & to define specific posts in a thread.
