A caution on Spotlight searches and ampersands
Authored by: osxpounder on Sep 25, '08 09:02:25AM

I agree; that would be easier to deal with. Thanks for pointing that out for us. Those words are easier to remember than the numerical code.

Sadly, in my particular case, I can't use those codes -- I'm marking up XML, to be literal, but using whatever HTML markup the application allows. The application is one a coworker built in Flash a year or two ago.

Whether it's Flash's limitation or not, I don't know, but I can't use some HTML markup, including those. Sometimes testing shows that certain HTML markups aren't interpreted correctly, and I have to work around it.
