I've been trying to find out what this means or does... "&"
<meta name="keywords" content="Lucios Byob & Grill" />
<title>Lucios Byob & Grill</title>

because it came out "&" when posted, does that mean it does nothing?
but that you can't use "&" in code unless it's with "amp;" ?

Yes, it's just the HTML code for the & symbol.

An ampersand is a character with special meaning in HTML (the code that builds the foundation of our web pages).

If you choose to validate your code to be standards compliant, you must code your ampersands out as &amp; or they will not validate.

Many hand coders use the W3c Markup Validation Service to check the markup of their web pages, to be sure there are no coding errors.
