When entering a URL like http://www.example.com/?foo=bar&baz=bum, the resulting HTML is <a href="http://www.example.com/?foo=bar&amp;amp;baz=bum">http://www.example.com/?foo=bar&...</a>. As you can see, the ampersand is escaped twice, corrupting the URL. This is an important issue, because we heavily rely on linking to the correct pages from our tickets.
