Putting a visible '&' character in the name of a form component

Hello,

I know that the '&' character in the name of a form component specifies which key will also trigger the component's event.  So, a '&' character doesn't show up in the name - it only underlines the character in the name it's in front of.

So, what if you want a '&' character to be visible in the component?  For example, what if you want a button that says "Sort & File" ?

Thanks in advance,
Tim

For me using this.Text = "Hello & Goodbye" in the Form1_Load works perfectly fine.
