validating a page by direct input (it's a private site, therefore no url!) I got
the following message:

obviously there is no unescaped &.

That is the whole div containing the & in question:


<div class='text'>
<a class='imgB' href='?art=del&amp;file=datei1#focus
<view-source:http://martinschicketanz.de/admin/?art=del&file=datei1#focus>'><img
src='del.png <view-source:http://martinschicketanz.de/admin/del.png>' alt='del'
/></a>
<a class='imgB' href='?art=edit&amp;file=datei1#focus
<view-source:http://martinschicketanz.de/admin/?art=edit&file=datei1#focus>'><img
src='change.png <view-source:http://martinschicketanz.de/admin/change.png>'
alt='change' /></a>

Thank you for the validator. Best regards.
