& is a special character in XML files. You have to write &
instead. The same is true for < and > which are < and >
respectively. mmg's chapter editor does this automatically.

There's nothing special about & in OGM style chapter files, though, so
mkvmerge will simply read them as they are. No need to specify an
encoding either.

Are 100% sure that it is missing in the output file? Try running mkvinfo
on it. Also post the chapter files you've tried. I've just tried the
attached files with mkvmerge and they both work fine.


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
