Amaya 4.3 (Linux) does not accept this:

     1	<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
     2	<body>
     3	<pre><samp>
     4	black && white
     5	</samp></pre>
     6	</body>
     7	</html>

but does this:

     1	<html>
     2	<body>
     3	<pre><samp>
     4	black && white
     5	</samp></pre>
     6	</body>
     7	</html>

The parsing error reported is:

    *** Errors/warnings in /tilde/ivanovic/tmp/test.html temp file: /tilde/ivanovic/.amaya/1/test.html  line 4, char 7: not well-formed

The W3 HTML Validator reports no errors with the first form.

Q1: Who is right, Amaya 4.3 (Linux) or the current (18 Oct 00) W3C HTML Validator?
Q2: If it is a bug, how do I report it, both for Amaya and for the W3C
    HTML Validator.

P.S. Please CC me on all replies since I'm not the www-amaya mailing
list. I could grep through the archives, but it's easier for me if I
don't. Thanks.
