passing two tokens using simple xml

<drilldown>
<link>manual_search-verification?form.index="$index$"&field="$field$"</link>
</drilldown>

I am trying to pass two tokens using a drilldown on a table object.

Splunk will not let me pass two tokens using an & operator (see code) - I get an XML syntax error (says it is expecting [;]... not sure how to implement this)

How should I be writing this query?

Thanks for the help all!

OK I've solved this myself, hope it helps someone else out too...

So instead of using "&" to join the query use "&amp;". For example:

<link>view?form.index="$index$"&amp;field="$field$"</link>

NOT:

<link>view?form.index="$index$"&field="$field$"</link>

You could also use CDATA to enclose text that you don't want to be processed as XML, like this

<link><![CDATA[view?form.index="$index$"&field="$field$"]]></link>

CDATA block is the way to go I think. Much easier.
