While validating my resume
(http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.charlescurley.com%2Fresume.charles.curley.html&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=%28detect+automatically%29&verbose=1),
I got a number of errors for this line, including the following:

Line 241, column 67: general entity "mode" not defined and no default entity

...inuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=5954&mode=thread&order=0" >Solitaire: A Consu
                                        ^

The ampersand about which the validator is complaining is in a URL,
not part of a character entity.

For the moment, my workaround is to ignore this error message.

I am not on this list, so if necessary please reply privately.

Thank you.
