WordPress 1.5 Ampersand Escaping Bug

This is a bit geeky, but I feel worth mentioning if you care about validation in WordPress 1.5. Problem? If a URL has an ampersand (&) in it, it won’t get escaped properly, thus breaking validation. Priyadi found a bug and has a fix. It’s a single line to add, so it’s very simple. (Golf clap: Blogging Pro)
