That error is correct.  The markup should read as either:

	<a href="breve/breve.html?MD=0&amp;_c=0" target="teksten">Breve</a>

which the browers will translate back to & before submission to the server,
or use

	<a href="breve/breve.html?MD=0;c=0" target="teksten">Breve</a>

which will require a corresponding adjustment to the script (client- or
server-side) on that HTML page that handles those fields to allow ; to be a
synonym for &.
