This a known bug: http://bugzilla.validator.nu/show_bug.cgi?id=841

As it seems to take some time to have the bug fixed, here's how to libe 
with it: Use http://validator.w3.org/nu/ and then, after getting the 
validation report, click on "Message filtering" and uncheck the checkbox 
for this error message. Then you can see whether there are real error 
messages.

Caveat: Doing so, you may mask out real errors too - like &foo; which 
also causes this message and which is actually wrong.
