[yast-devel] How to show a literal '&' in an UI string?

I like to display a literal '&' in a UI dialog string like:
`InputField( `id(`options),
_("Options (option1=value1&option2=value2)"),
"" )
but neither
"Options (option1=value1\&option2=value2)"
"Options (option1=value1\046option2=value2)"
works for me.

When I run the module with
yast2 --gt module
and with
yast2 --qt module
the text which is shown in the dialog is always

Options (option1=value1option2=value2)

i.e. the '&' character is omitted.
