16.15.2 The ‘capture’ protocol

Activating the “capture” handler pops up a ‘Capture’ buffer in Emacs,
using acapture template.

     emacsclient org-protocol://capture?template=X?url=URL?title=TITLE?body=BODY

In my opinion above line has errors and places "?" where actually the
symbol "&" should be.

This works:

emacsclient 'org-protocol://store-link?url=http://www.gnu.org&title=GNU.org'

while this does not work:

emacsclient 'org-protocol://store-link?url=http://www.gnu.org?title=GNU.org'

Thus the line should be shown as below in the manual:

emacsclient org-protocol://capture?template=X&url=URL&title=TITLE&body=BODY

and I would recommend quoting:

emacsclient 'org-protocol://capture?template=X&url=URL&title=TITLE&body=BODY'
