Hi all,

The following code will work:

cygstart
http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/fulltext?ID=108568046&PLACEBO=IE.pdf&mode=pdf

But, if I use the following codes:

MyWileyID = 108568046
cygstart
http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/fulltext?ID=$MyWileyID&PLACEBO=IE.pdf&mode=pdf

The above codes will fail, while the following ones will does the
trick:

MyWileyID = 108568046
cygstart
http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/fulltext?ID=$MyWileyID\&PLACEBO=IE.pdf\&mode=pdf

Any hints on this issue?
