Hi,

  Hey, this is a FAQ and the validator does not do it any better than
Joe Average? I first thought of an Aprils Fool... If a URI submitted for
Validation contains a &, the Validator will not escape it (most of the
time) on the results page, see e.g.

  http://validator.w3.org:8001/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fvalidator.w3.org%3A8001%2Fcheck%3Furi%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.w3.org%252F%253F%2526foo

(validation of validation of http://www.w3.org/&foo).
