I'm trying to write a Guide Entry - first snag, the URL I want to bookmark for reference, and ideally to link to as part of the entry uses an ampersand "&" the result I cannot update the page.


I thought enclosing the http address in " " meant go to anything within these " " but the entry edit box is still trying to parse the character like it's within the main body of text.

HELP!
