hmmm, i think the error is due to & in your URL.

Just use &amp; instead of & , and everything should work fine.

Here is what is happening:
'&' signifies the begining of of an entity (e.g. &nbsp; &amp; &gt; &lt;
etc), and your URL reads:

....&delmonth....

The validator think &delmonth is an entity, but it is an undefined entity
by the HTML DTD.
