This is present in Amaya 1.0a, but has been present in earlier releases.

If Amaya reads in the following HTML:

    <a href="/cgi-bin/program?x=1&y=1">Link</a>
    <img src="/cgi-bin/program?x=1&y=1">

It doesn't complain about the link, but it does complain that "&y="
is an invalid entity in the <img>.

Another interesting feature is that "&ft;" is turned into a ">" symbol,
but I don't recognise that as a valid entity.
