We're on a Microsoft/ASP site platform (not my choice). Some of our pages bear links to querystring URLs with ampersands separating the various parameters. When these links are coded using the ampersand character the pages will not validate.
If we replace them in the code with the ampersand entity code, "&" the links still work fine when the pages are rendered by IE, Firefox and Chrome. The pages also validate.
My question is, does anyone know of any problems with search engines (especially Google) crawling and indexing via links that are coded using the entity code instead of the ampersand character?
Thanks for any input.
