Hi

I've followed the instructions about replacing &'s in URL with &amp; as
detailed here:
http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/problems.html#amp

However, the validator is still coming up with the same errors, ie:

Line 186, column 113: cannot generate system identifier for general entity
"z" 
  ...jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?REPORT&z=3"><img src="images/ql-2.jpg"
alt="Go 
                                          ^
Line 186, column 113: general entity "z" not defined and no default entity
(explain... <http://validator.w3.org/docs/errors.html>). 
  ...jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?REPORT&z=3"><img src="images/ql-2.jpg"
alt="Go 
                                          ^
Line 186, column 114: reference to entity "z" for which no system identifier
could be generated 
  ...iscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?REPORT&z=3"><img src="images/ql-2.jpg"
alt="Go t
                                          ^
Line 186, column 112: entity was defined here 
  ....jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?REPORT&z=3"><img src="images/ql-2.jpg"
alt="Go
                                          ^
Line 187, column 114: reference to entity "z" for which no system identifier
could be generated 
  ...iscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?REPORT&z=3" class="links">Subscriber's
                                          ^
Line 186, column 112: entity was defined here 
  ....jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?REPORT&z=3"><img src="images/ql-2.jpg"
alt="Go
                                          
Lines 186 & 187 now look like this in my code:
<a href="http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?REPORT&amp;z=3">

Any ideas what I'm still doing wrong?

Thanks
