As the FAQ says, & must be represented as &amp;

If this causes the server to produce as error then:

1. There is a fault with the user agent failing to convert &amp; to & (very unlikely)
2. The server is performing some preprocessing on the HTML before passing it to the client (in which 
case the fault is with the preprocessor)
or
3. The user is testing by copy/pasting the URI from the source code and failing to manually convert 
&amp; to & in the request.

Whichever - the fault is not with the validator.

There could be other explanations, but I can not think of any.
