Best Available Ampersands


Automatically replaces all ampersands in post titles and content with ones styled using Dan Cederholm’s “Use the Best Available Ampersand” technique.



  1. Upload ampersands.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Enjoy pretty ampersands!


What is the point of this plugin?

A really popular idea (originally crafted by Dan Cederholm) is that it looks really nice if one uses a special font for ampersands, generally fonts that are known for fancy ampersands such as Baskerville and Palatino Linotype. This is sometimes tiresome to implement, so this plugin does it for you!
