Sample HTML

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<html lang="en">
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <meta name="Title" content="I like XML & XSL!">
    <meta name="Description" content="I like M&Ms.  Yum!">

The Validator should complain about ampersands not represented as entities.

Actual Results
The Validator only complains about the second mistake, finding an invalid

Are my expectations faulty?  Or is the Validator?
