"&" symbol in querystring

I have a problem if the parameter has a "&" symbol in querystring,

i think asp.net will split the value into 2 values as "&" is a spliter

any advise can give me to solve this problem?

P.S. I can't restrict user don't input "&" symbol when input

Thanks in advanced.

Yes, you need to use Server.UrlEncode.
This will turn the ampersand into an encoded character.
Then, when you read in the querystring, make sure you use
Server.UrlDecode.

Note: dont be confused with Server.HtmlEncode which is used for
encoding HTML tags.
So here's an example:

string url = "result.aspx?text=" + Server.UrlEncode(InputBox.Text)

and on other end

string result = Server.UrlDecode(Request.Querystring["text"])

Replace the & with %26.
