           Summary: Improperly marked up ampersand is not detected

The above URL has an ampersand tht is in the markup as '&' and not '&amp;' and
the validator doesn't detect it (eg, Line 61, Column 174).

However, the same HTML page with a misspelt tage (<aronym> instead of <acronym>
on Line 61, col 451) throws up the mispelt tag aerror as well as the original
ampersand error. This can be viewed in this URL:

(sorry i could not strip it down to a simpler html page, as i am a bit pressed
for time.)
