Is there a particular way to encode & to display in a work item label

I have created a custom presentation for my story work items to indicate if something is classed as R&D but they label does not show the &, just RD.  Is there any way to encode the & to display in the label?

Can you provide a bit more details on what exactly you are doing?

Have you tried & or %26 

Caroline Smith commented Nov 29 '12, 6:30 a.m.

Yep, tried both and they just show up as amp; and %26

it works for me in 4.0 and not in

in 3.x, I could still get the & to show up by appending an empty space.. but I do understand that eventually you will end up with R & D and not R&D

I tried the spaces in 3.0.1 but now I just get R D and still no ampersand
