On second thought, parsing the bnf would seem to get from


result-token-1 result-token-2 result-token-3

where the second result-token is the equals. And then it is fine, it produces:


The concatentation A%%X%%3 would also seem to work the same way when X gets 
replaced with "B=1". I repeat: Horrid!
