Hi,

  Consider I have a CGI script taking parameters like
<http://www.w3.org/?foo;outline=1>; the validator does not escape the
URI when creating the "link to /this/ page" text, it will produce


http://validator.w3.org:8001/check?uri=http://www.w3.org/?foo;outline=1

which will be misinterpreted by the validator.
