This is intentional. I'm not sure how to fix it, however. Try using
"&&&&"

Yes, that's standard Windows controls behaviour. Underlined letters make up the keyboard shortcut for the related action (which for buttons is a click). In a button labelled "Test" for example, hitting the "Alt" key and then "e" has the effect of clicking that button.

You see oliver? I told you that you wouldn't be made fun of for not knowing. Now you do and aren't you glad you asked it? :P These people are very helpful and go in detail about your question and answer it quickly.

I learned something new as well. Asking here was the next best thing to do since Jaytea was idle at the time.
