I think it's important to point out when you say that you need to encode '&' characters in a HTML link attribute () that you are referring only to the ampersands of the URI syntax, not those found in the link (which must be percent-encoded).

Here’s a little guide to help clear up that If you’re using a web framework that escapes variables for you and you pass in a url as a variable into javascript, then you’ll have to make sure it doesn’t encode the ampersands.

In Django, you would write something like this: Nice summary.

So its ampersand is percent-encoded as & and this component becomes "rock&roll".

Any ampersand in the text itself, such as "rock&roll", should always be percent-encoded, not HTML-escaped.

It also defines the media types application/xml and text/xml, which say only that the data is in XML, and nothing about its semantics.
