Semicolons and ampersands should be equivalent, per the HTML 4.01  
recommendation, semicolons are preferred since they do not require  
escaping when they appear in HTML or XML documents.

The problem only appears to occur in POST requests with multiple  
keys.  I've added fallback behavior to my app to request the same data  
key by key which will work around the 500 error that occurs on the  
POST request.

I've observed failures when the request body is about 1000 characters,  
possibly running into a problem with the request being too large or  
perhaps the response is taking too long.  The server message is no  
help in understanding what could be going on without a knowledge of  
CouchDB internals.
