Hi Eugene,
> include some URLs in some attributes that contain ampersands.
I think one reason might be is that the & is used in the the
sequence like <=> to indicate a mix of characters
where the > sequence is actually a reference to a
character in the current character set. i'm sure someone
knows a better definition than that, Send that unparsed or
somehow escape it and it might work.
There are a couple of things not to do with a uri,
like spaces are not allowed, although you may use+-.

I guess worst case you make it content instead of an attribute.
also check the rules for w3c.dom.attr
which i will also do.

Thanks and Best Regards,
