As you can see, Genealogy & Family History.SE's generic close reason distorts the site name. The & hasn't turned into &.

That's my error, Luke, not a bug. –  ColeValleyGirl Jun 26 '13 at 17:18

You can include an ampersand in the default off-topic reason without any problems - the system escapes it automatically.

However, if you go back and edit the reason again, you're shown the escaped ampersand (&) - if you then save it, that gets escaped again (&) and shows up incorrectly.

The work-around is just to make sure the close reason looks correct before you save it.
