    [PHP] Preg_relpace ampersand ( & ) with &

    With the help of the wonderful Penagate, I was able to solve a problem I had when dealing with improper ampersands on certain websites.

    The problem was that some sites doesn't escape their ampersands (&) with &. Here is a small line of code that will replace all & with & without messing up other html-encoded entities such as < etc.

    PHP Code:
    $body preg_replace('/&(?![#]?[a-z0-9]+;)/i'"&$1"$body);
