Allow ampersands in tags

The tag closes before the &

The ZWJ emoji is also split - but I’ve added to the bug report that already exists

The ampersand isn’t a permitted character:

The only symbols allowed are:

  1. _ (underscore) and - (dash) to separate words;
  2. / (forward slash) for nested tags.

Numbers are allowed in the tag, as long as the tag is not purely numeric. For example, #1984 isn’t a valid tag, but #y1984 is a valid one.


Ah! Didn’t think to check that.
It works in Tangent, so I assumed it ought to work in Obsidian. But Tangent accepts numeric tags too so I should have checked.
Switched post to feature request.
