I am seeing some bad behavior with Web View dashlet in 3.2 and wanted to know if it is just me or if there is a config to fix it.

Log into Share or Alfresco.
Customize your Dashboard.
Add the Web View dashlet.
Click configure on the upper right corner of the dashlet.
Enter in something in the "Link Title" with an ampersand, like "Q & A."
Now click configure on the upper right of the dashlet and go ahead and click Ok.
Now it reads "Q & A."
Now click configure on the upper right of the dashlet and go ahead and click Ok.
Now it reads "Q & A."
Repeat…

We call this the "Ampersand Problem."

You can also do this with greater than (>) and less than (<.)
