The problem is with your (or PHP's) HTML, not with the markup validation

Read the FAQ: http://validator.w3.org/docs/help.html#faq-ampersand

PHP can be configured to generate valid HTML for query strings, but
doesn't by default (I haven't a clue why, their default settings are
invalid in any version of (X)HTML you care to name). The PHP manual
describes how to configure PHP to do the right thing.
