Question about '&'

Currently, bare ampersands in journal entries don't seem to be escaped by the HTML cleaner. Since most users are lazy and HTML-illiterate, bare ampersands are very common, which leads to people who want an XHTML-compliant style being kinda annoyed.

So, my question is, should we escape & to & in bare journal text?

The reason why we might not want to is that some people create styles that aren't HTML.

Opinions, please?
