View Full Version : XHTML, entities, querystrings, and validation

Anyone know why the validator at http://validator.w3.org gives me errors when URL's in my page (hrefs) contain ampersands in their querystrings? It seems to think that an entity should be there.

Is this acutally invalid? Or just an error with the validator?

It's not an error, ampersands are invalid. Change them into & amp; and your page validates..

Sweet, thanks.

Yeah, I probably would have run into that problem in a bit myself (although right now I'm only using one querystring value). Thanks. :)
