Hi,

I just checked some pages with the w3 validator for HTML 4.01 strict
and got an error for all anchors, which have an "&" in the URI
(e.g.  on

        <TD class="footer-right"><A
        href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.feelino.org/&warning=2">
        <IMG width=44 height=15
        src="/images/vcss.gif" alt="Valid CSS!"></A></TD>

the validator pukes:
Error: general entity "warning" not defined and no default entity
)


AFAIK, & is allowed in URIs and should not be interpreted as an single entity.
So is it a tiny validator bug or did I miss something????

Regards,
Jens.
