What Are These Additional Characters?

  • I’ve been trying to add some affiliate code to my site which creates a flight search widget.

    The HTML view shows the code correctly when I input it.

    However, the link which appears on the live page sends visitors to an incorrect place.

    When I check carefully I see that the source code contains some extra characters which the affiliate informs me is where the problem lies.

    More specifically the offending characters are #038;

    So for example,

    THIS:
    http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-1303669-10644872?sid=&url=@@url@@

    BECOMES THIS:
    http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-1303669-10644872?sid=&url=@@url@@

    The affiliate tells me that I must remove #038; to make the widget work correctly but this is not an option as these characters do not exist in my HTML code, only in the live source code.

    Any suggestions would be most welcome.

    By the way … the exact same code works just fine on a static website created in Expression Web.
