Hello,

I was checking www.nativapps.com and the W3C checker give me this error:

& did not start a character reference. (& probably should have been escaped as &amp;.)

This is not an error, because we are using href:

href="https://maps.google.com/maps?q=10+South+Third+Street,+San+Jos%C3%A9,+California,+United+States&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=37.336913,-121.887817&spn=0.009264,0.021136&sll=37.33693,-121.887882&sspn=0.009264,0.021136&oq=10+South+Third+Street,+San+Jos%C3%A9,+California,+United&t=h&hnear=10+S+3rd+St,+San+Jose,+California+95113&z=16"

The "&" is part of the address that google request, not an error or part of &amp; code. I think you will improve this or may you help me to solve it? Thanks!

All my best,


NOTE: Whenever possible, give the address of the document you were checking.
