For the IQ impaired, huh? Sending to an inaccessible page seems rather
unhelpful.

The question here, is why is the HTML error parser processing the
contents of "href" attribute values, when properly enclosed by
matching quotation marks?

Apparently, a "correct" html/xhtml document isn't allowed to include
parameters in a referred-to URI. This seems somewhere between rude,
and mired in trivia, and greatly reduces the value of checking
standards.
