Is there a way to send an external html parameter, and to encapsulate it somehow? The problem I'm having is when a customer enters an "&" sign into the text fields, it throws the parameter off because of that sign. I need to send my parameters in an HTML link

I think you can try using Javascript, specifically encodeURIComponent()

You could encode only the value you are having issues with.

Let me give you an example:

<a id="myLink">Text to Display</a>
var field = document.getElementById("yourField");
var link = document.getElementById("myLink");
var encodedStr = encodeURIComponent(field.value);
link.href = "yoururl.com?v1=test&v2=" + encodedStr;

I hope it helps.
