The problem with "=" in template values is the following:

A template with parameters {{{1}}} and {{{2}}} can be called as in the

This, of course, implies that any "=" characters in a template value are
interpreted as a name value pair delimiter. The solution is to use the long
name value pair notation mentioned above when a value contains an "=" sign:

Another solution would be to create a template (named e.g. Equal) just
containing "=", and use it this way
