Title: Dotty on Windows incorrectly handles ampersand
Submitter: Martin Visser
Date: Fri Sep 16 07:24:03 2005
Subsys: Output generation
Version: 2.6
System: x86-Windows-XP
Severity: minor
Problem:
I get two different results depending on whether I use "dotty" to view the graph or "dot -Tpng" to output to PNG.

 Input:      |      &    |      &&   |   \&     |
 Dotty       |      _    |      &    |  <blank> |
 dot -Tpng   |      &    |     &&    |     &    |

Input:
 graph g {
 rankdir="LR"
 node1 [label="single ampersand &"]
 node2 [label="double ampersand &&"]
 node3 [label="slash ampersand \&"]
 }
Output file: b792.png
Comments: The same problem is not exhibited in the Linux binary of dotty
