There are many characters within URLs (& = etc.) that cannot altered, encoded
or eliminated. It would be a staggering effort to encode every ampersand within
every URL on the web.  

 Line 128, Column 110: general entity "m" not defined and no default entity

✉
This is usually a cascading error caused by a an undefined entity reference or
use of an unencoded ampersand (&) in an URL or body text. See the previous
message for further details.

 Line 128, Column 111: reference not terminated by REFC delimiter

✉
If you meant to include an entity that starts with "&", then you should
terminate it with ";". Another reason for this error message is that you
inadvertently created an entity by failing to escape an "&" character just
before this text.

 Line 128, Column 111: reference to external entity in attribute value
…/B0082PM7QA/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2" title="Amazon

✉
This is generally the sign of an ampersand that was not properly escaped for
inclusion in an attribute, in a href for example. You will need to escape all
instances of '&' into '&amp;'.

 Line 128, Column 111: reference to entity "m" for which no system identifier
could be generated
