Incorrect.

To quote from the URL you included:

An entity reference was found in the document, but there is no reference by that name defined. Often this is caused by misspelling the reference name, unencoded ampersands, or by leaving off the trailing semicolon (;). The most common cause of this error is unencoded ampersands in URLs as described by the WDG in "Ampersands in URLs": http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/problems.html#amp
