& in url

20
Hello
I am using frontpage 2002 and it has a view that tells you all the broken links. So I've been trying to fix the broken links but there's one that I can't figure out.
I didn't make most of the pages and I don't know who made most of the pages so I cannot ask the creator.
There is one url that has an & at the end like this:
mainfolder/folder/folder/folder/&
It could just be a mistake, but I was also thinking maybe it has a meaning like ? and # have a meaning in an address.
Does & have a meaning in an address?

I don't believe so unless it's part of the files name, which If I remember correctly it shouldn't be do to the fact of it could interfere with certain scripts.


Hope it helps, Death
PS - I'm not entirely sure so I would google ampersands in file names.

The & (ampersand) seperates variables in a URL, for example:

http://www.thescripts.com/forum/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=2883023


I would presume you URL is a mistake.

This would be OK:

www.test.com/mainfolder/folder/folder/folder/?variable=something

This would be wrong:

mainfolder/folder/folder/folder/&variable=something
