Error caused by a query string parameter in the externalLink's linkUri property

In a conceptual topic, I have an externalLink element under topic - developerConceptualDocument - section - content - para. The linkUri looks like this: https://server.company.com/Page.aspx?ObjectID=0123456789&Latest=True . When I try to build the project, I get the following errors:
  • Entity 'Latest' not defined.
  • Expecting ';'.
If I remove the &Latest=True part from the query string in the linkUri value, then it builds fine. Is this a known issue? Any workarounds? Thanks.

As noted in the externalLink topic, XML entities such as '&' will need to be encoded (&).
