Find and Wrap Ampersands

Load this plugin. Then:

$("body *").replaceText( /&/gi, '<b class="ampersand">' + '&' + '</b>' );

Change the selector as needed. That one is pretty intense.

Now you have a class name you can use to style them specially.

.ampersand {
   font-family: Baskerville, Some Other Cool Font, Serif;
   font-style: italic;
}
icon-link icon-logo-star icon-search icon-star
