This is a bug in the HTML5 "validator" or in the HTML5 "specification", 
depending on who you ask. In practice, ignore it. (I use the quotes

"specification" is work in progress that may and will change without 

You can replace the "&" by "&amp;" to get rid of this error message.

You have a dl element that contains nothing but a dt element. This is 
invalid syntax, and rather pointless - you probably should not use dl
