Yes. That's exactly what they're for ;)

I don't think the system will change it later to correct that, so I want to know if you have any way, similar to the one mentioned by Elzubair in his last e-mail, for changing letter forms in vim. Since Nadim is working on hacking vim, I think he should know if he has added such a feature, or maybe he could add it later. If anybody knows that the feature exists (I don't think it does, because all the translations I've seen don't have it), please let me know, so that I start adding my missing &'s.

Don't worry about that. Those '&' are not going to be rendered when you are
running the actual application, and so it will show correctly. This has been
discussed on several occasions before, but I can't seem to find the thread on
