29 errors remaining, and at a bit of a holding pattern

Here is where I stand at this point:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fosxhelp.com%2Fcustomizing-the-finder-sidebar-in-os-x%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&group=1

Specific issues:
The & and &amp; issue in hrefs, I can deal with this with code and  
links I put in, some of our links are from Amazon, and you just copy  
and paste them out of a form.  Sure, I can find and replace on the  
ambersand every time, but it is troublesome.

Off topic, anyone know if there is a php option I can turn on that  
when sending out the page, it will find the ampersand and deal with it?

Suggestions outside of php options?

+++++++

These three links seem to be the source of most of my errors, and I am  
not sure how to deal with it, do you really shove CDATA in there, or  
am I missing something:

<a href="http://reddit.com/submit" onclick="window.open('http://reddit.com/submit?url= 
<?php the_permalink() ?>&title=<?php the_title(); ?>', 'reddit');  
return false;">Reddit</a> |

<a href="http://digg.com/submit" onclick="window.open('http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title) 
, 'digg'); return false;">Digg</a> |

<a href="http://del.icio.us/post" onclick="window.open('http://del.icio.us/post?v=4&noui&jump=close&url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title) 
, 'delicious','toolbar=no,width=700,height=400'); return  
false;">Del.icio.us</a>

value of attribute Y cannot be X; must be one of %3
<input type="search" placeholder="Search..." autosave="bsn_srch"  
results="5" n

That is a Safari specific issue, as the placeholder, autosave, and  
results are all custom to Safari and I fail validation.  I want to use  
the feature, how can i get around this?

++++++

How do you put in youtube embed and get validation?  Flash Satay will  
not work as I am not creating the flash source files.

I think I will validate if I can resolve the above issues, thanks.
