smiley - huh I've done this tons of times before but the link I'm trying to put into : A13068056
Doesn't link to the right page, yet, when I click on the very same link (albeit with the & symbole in it rahter than changing it to the AMP as I've done in the entry), it does take me to the right page smiley - erm I'm probably missing something relaly obvious smiley - wahsmiley - headhurts

You shouldn't be replacing & by AMP. The correct substitution is & (including the ampersand at the start and the semicolon at the end).

Removing the stray bracket character, ie '(', from just before the ampersand makes a difference for me.
