I also noticed the same problem with the validator and querystrings trying
to validate some html 4.01 code.

Does this mean that a querystring of the form 

?a=b&amp;c=d

is valid html 4.01 but

?a=b&c=d

isn't?

I have always believed that the second format was the correct one (and
Liam's reply implies that it is)  - why rely on the browser correctly
translating the html escape sequence for "&"???
