Wow, replying from your phone really adds a lot of unnecessary whitespace…
Anyway, I agree with you that in regular text, an ampersand is not all that uncommon. My target audience is probably savvy enough to not make a big deal out of it, but I’m keeping it in my mind. I’ve planned to add some form of markdown linting to the package, which at least could inform a user why the ampersand is highlighted as invalid. Seems kind of a harsh treatment for the visually most delicate character of the ascii-set to be the metaphorical outcast.
Thanks for your input nonetheless.
You make a good argument. While using a
& in common text is not unheard of, it probably isn’t proper.
I’d say to leave it as it is.
