Hello,

I get spurious warnings inside URls.

Try tidy on this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE></TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<A HREF="http://www.apcatalog.com/cgi-bin/AP?ISBN=0122861663&FORM=FORM2">G.G.</A>

</BODY>
</HTML>

I get this warning:
	line 8 column 61 - Warning: unescaped & or unknown entity "&FORM"
Correct if I'm wrong, but I believe that `&' inside an URL does not have
to be escaped, does it?
