| I am posting this from the Validator feedback page at w3.org. This is
| about a problem I have with validating a site made by me: it contains
| links to a banner exchange service and a statistics service, and both of
| these URLs contain a '&' character. 
| 
| The w3-validator and also the HTMLHelp-validator mistakenly assume that
| it is an HTML entity and report an error. Is there a way around this so
| that I can put the "HTML 4.0" on this site?

simply use &amp; instead of '&'.
