Account ID in a parameter report

I am trying to create a hyperlink on a Visualforce Account page which will open an opportunity report.


Both the below variations run the report with an 18 character account id when the report requires a 15 character Account Id


<a href="/00OS0000000wS5N?pv0={!Account.Id}">Open Opportunities</a>


<apex:outputLink value="/00OS0000000wS5N?pv0={!account.id}">Open Opportunities</apex:outputLink>

 I'd appreciate advice as to what I am doing wrong.

I worked out the correct syntax:


<apex:outputLink value="/00OS0000000wS5N?pv0={! LEFT(account.id, 15)}">Open Opportunities</apex:outputLink>
