Liam,
it's not that simple unfortunately. Every url of an external link like
an newspaper article shows up with a different error message. But even
if I know how to correct it. I tried it with the one who has the '&' if
I change it my browser does not recognize the url anymore.
e.g. the Information society, eEurope 2002: accessibility of public web
sites and their content for disabled people NEW 
has the url
http://wwwdb.europarl.eu.int/oeil/oeil_ViewDNL.ProcedureView?lang=2&procid=5959
the error message is 
Line 133, column 50: 
  ...
arl.eu.int/oeil/oeil_ViewDNL.ProcedureView?lang=2&procid=5959">Informa
...
                                                        ^Error: unknown
entity "procid" 

Line 133, column 50: 
  ...
.int/oeil/oeil_ViewDNL.ProcedureView?lang=2&procid=5959">Information 
                                                        ^Error:
reference not terminated by refc delimiter 

And if I change anything like add amp; ... you can't open the page
anymore
Any ideas? It is very annoying with that one as this about accessible
sites

  Cheers
Gregor
