How do I pass a parameter within the URLRequest()?

I can successfully invoke report (a LogiXML report) until I try to add a parameter; the 'coid=23'.  I can  paste the URL in the browser and the report works fine.  However, inside of Flex, I get the error:

"The reference to entity "coid" must end with the ';' delimiter."  How do I get around this.  I know that I will need to pass multiple parameters in the next series of reports.

My LinkButton code:

<mx:LinkButton id="bLinkToReport" label="View New Report" enabled="true" click="navigateToURL(new URLRequest('http://localhost/wmsrpts/rdPage.aspx?rdReport=Default&coid=23'))"/>

public function sendRequest() {
            var url:String = "http://localhost/wmsrpts/rdPage.aspx";
            var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
            var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
            variables.rdReport="Default";
            variables.coid="23";
            request.data = variables;
            navigateToURL(request);
        }

and change the mxml code as shown below:

I missed this entirely in the documentation.  I'm new to Flex, I've worked for 20 years with Magic Software, but I'm absolutely Flex can do whatever I need to do....
Thanks again.
