Hi,

when trying Unicorn on my page http://claudio.ch/ it reported a useful result 
(all OK).

When trying to validate http://claudio.ch/links.html the response given is a 
simple and "cryptic":

   1.   Error   : The response of this observer seems to be malformed

      This is probably not your fault. You can contact the maintainer of 
Unicorn and describe how you get this error.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

This was caused by the mere fact, that an URL in an <a href="..."> contained 
some & instead of &amp;

validator.w3.org was able to show me the problem in detail.
