HTML Link Question

How do I write a link to a search in Apple iBookstore on iTunes?

Here is a proper link to one book in iBooks:
<a href=" http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/isbn#############">Apple iBooks</a>
Where ###... is a 13 digit ISBN number.

I wish to link to a search that returns all book by one author from one publisher.
The search is simple: Publisher Name, Author Last Name The comma is important.

I want to link to the page with all the books listed. Here is the syntax for the search result:
http://ax.search.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZSearch.woa/wa/search?media=all&term=Publisher+Name%2C+Author

I have not successfully integrated this in an HTML line. Any sugestions or solutions?

Thanks - Fabe

P.S. I posted this in the Apple forums, but no one has responded. All the smart people hang out here.

It should work just like your first example—provided your search url syntax is correct.
Code:
<a href="http://ax.search.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZSearch.woa/wa/search?media=all&term=Random+House%2C+McCarthy">Link Text</a>
Link Text

I don't have iTunes so it won't let me (or anybody else who doesn't have an iTunes account) even see the results of such a search, so....

In your example, you have a space between the quote and the start of the URL. That can cause some problems.

You will need to encode the & in the url as &amp;.
