Validating CSS on URIs with ampersands

I find that I am able to submit URIs with ampersands to the XHTML validator, but not the CSS validator.

Example:

This will be evaluated:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fspacestamps.amhosting.com%2Fstamps%2Fissue.php%3Fent%3Dnev%26set%3D1

This won't:
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://spacestamps.amhosting.com/stamps/issue.php?ent=nev&set=1

But if I cut and paste the URI from the top link into the bottom link, I can validate my CSS.

Would be nice if I didn't have to manually cut and paste.
