I am running into problems, occasionally, when I try to validate news added to this website.
Is there something wrong with the validator or the source code?
Also, sometimes the reported error changes to question marks instead of blocks.


The page index.php will not validate occasionally due to weird encoding type errors. I do not see any problem with the page where the error is stated. The page views correctly in Opera/Mozilla/IE.
Reported Error:
Line 354, column 31: non SGML character number 146
