I get a lot of moans from the validator for URIs which contain &
characters: these are passed as arguments to a cgi script on another
site. The validator complains that the entity is not defined: surely
this should only happen on the body of the html, not in a URI. See

is a bug in the parser. Please let me know otherwise.

I'm not on the mailing list, so please email me directly if you want a
