& handling problem

I've got a page (http://ccpops.org/index.shtml) that fails as follows: 

  href='AnythingGoes2002/castcrew.shtml'>Cast&nbsp;&&nbsp;Crew 
                                                        ^
  Error:  character "&" is the first character of a delimiter but
          occurred as data  

but the source for that section is:

  href='AnythingGoes2002/castcrew.shtml'>Cast&nbsp;&amp;&nbsp;Crew 
                                                   ^^^^^

It looks to me as though the validator is failing my page
inappropriately; is there something here I don't understand?
