Dan Cederholm has long used the Baskerville Italic ampersand, and tells us to Use The Best Ampersand Available. For better or worse, this has gotten to be ridiculously popular. If you’d like to use this fancy ampersand:

Script <span 
class="amp">&amp;</span> Style
.amp {
  font-family: Baskerville, 'Goudy Old Style', Palatino, 'Book Antiqua', serif;
  font-style: italic;
  font-weight: normal;
