problem defining category_name containing an ampersand when using get_bookmarks

So this is a new version of my last post now that I realized that my problem was not with the accents contained in my category titles, but with the ampersands (&:wink:.

When using get_bookmarks(), and the parameter category_name to display a specific category of links, I run into trouble with any category containing an ampersand.

Anyone know a way around this? The ampersands are pretty important to my category names!

Thanks folks!
