XML Driven getURL

Got a real problem on my hands.

My Flash project is xml driven, and refernces external pages using the old:

[FONT=Courier New]getURL("[var here]","_self");

[/FONT]Imagine my delight when testing my project to find out that the xml driven [FONT=Courier New]getURL, doesnt recognise the ampersand!

I’ve tried: “%26” as per
I’ve even tried “#%26”, “&”, “&” its very annoying, infact I’m rather upset about the whole thing.

(my website references products using “Products.aspx?ID=179&MediaType=Flash”)

please help me and many others!!
