getting "&" to show correctly in string

Go to solution Solved by TheSaint,

So i am making a script that is pretty much functional except for one thing.

The Script is to collect Song, artist and liked status from Pandora and also click the "I'm Still Listening" button after like a hour of playing music

So i got all of those working perfectly and i am very pleased with it.

Unfortunately, i noticed an issue with the ampersand symbol. It displays "&" instead of just the &

here is what it looks like plus the code for collecting and displaying the results:

That's a feature of HTML, where the ampersand is a reserved keyword, so in a web page it is represented as &

The same occurs in XML.

Just do a StringReplace for each instance detected.
