karthik i know what is going on....what ever we are typing is getting converted by the browser.....okay you meant
johnson "&" johnson ....disregard the quotes.... or johnson
"&" johnson when i try giving "&" it does not work
but if i give "&" it works...and moreover is there any parser which will understand all this without us going thru the trouble of writing hash blah blah...is there anyway in the <DOCTYPE Entity.....> where you can specify all this
