test case

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open http://www.nih.gov.
2. Choose Yahoo Bookmarks from the Bookmark and Share menu.
3. Enter Yahoo username and password.
4. Enter a title (note that a default value should be present at this step).
5. Press Save.

This only works in IE, not in Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Opera.

The reason for this is that IE apparently decodes entities in URLs, see attached test case. Even though the string contains &, an actual request contains an ampersand.

Probably an evangelism bug.
