This bug has been fixed in SVN.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net
by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should
be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

The bibTex method should be escape TeX special characters such as & and
%. These should be output as \& and \% respectively. Not doing so could
be seen as a bug... but I thought I would put this in as a feature

I provide a patch to add this feature. Bascially I've just pinched some
code from another PEAR package (Text_Wiki) and put calls into the
appropriate places.

I don't know what your patch guidelines are (and I haven't spent much
energy looking). I have tried to match coding/comment style and the
patches in CVS. I will be happy to revise if there are any problems.
