& / ampersand vs and`

How should we configure “&” vs “and” to ensure they show the same results? I guess synonyms but wondering (again) if there’s a setting already working for this in Algolia that I have missed?

Example product title - “Footballs & Carry Bag”, we would want searches for “Footballs and Carry Bag” to return the same results.

In Magento our product titles which include ampersands would be set up as & amp ; does this affect the synonym too? How is algolia receiving the information? i.e. does it need synonym for “& amp ;”, “&”, “and”
