Pinned topic How do I replace any ampersands in a text string with another character ?

‏2011-06-03T07:58:07Z |
I am passing a string into a PHP URL and all works fine until the string contains one or more ampersands, then as expected any text following the ampersand is allocated to another parameter. I am using string.replace to identify and replace the & with a hyphen and have tried a number of different ways to define an ampersand in the regexp, all to no avail. Pretty basic I know.. but it has me stumped.
Any assistance gratefully received.
