No

When I clicked on ((Page with &)) for the first time,
it went to...

URL
http://demo.1coop.ca/tiki-editpage.php?page=Page+with+%26amp%3B

ERROR MESSAGE
Invalid variable value : page = Page & name: with signs

I got a similar error with ((Page with : colon)), although
((Page name - with dash)) worked fine.

Note: I have Wiki Link Format set to "complete".

I found this error in CVS 1.8 although I see this error
also persists in CVS 1.9.

Go fixer go!

    I was able to create a page with "&" in it through
    structures, but when I click the print print version button
    I get the same "Invalid variable value" error.
    e.g.
    /tiki-print.php?page=Page+with+%26amp%3B.

    I also get this error from pages with "&" from
    /tiki-searchindex.php

    I did the fix in 1.9 for the moment....
    As it touchs the security protection, waiting for the
    experts to validate the fix
    If it is ok, I will backport to 1.8
