Ampersand Issue with downloaded metedata

Hello,
I've noticed that whenever I download metedata for a title with an ampersand in the title, it inserts the text 'amp;' into the title next to the original ampersand. I wasn't sure if this was Calibre doing this or just the results from the online sources but I thought I would ask.

Thanks!
Danny

several little anomalies like this. A "," in the author line produces the word "and" as well and a ";" gives a vertical hash mark. Guess that it must be some built in coding

On the Ampersand issue, Some ISBN's off hand are:

0671318284
1416520783
0671878530

Sometimes multiple entries may be returned and not all seem to have this issue so I'm not sure what the cause may be.
