Hi,
i got a page with a link and title-Tag like this:
<li><a href="/ndr/ndr_pages_idx/0,2571,SPM908,00.html" title="KONZERTE &
EVENTS"><img src="/container/ndr_style_images_gen_default/0,2718,65996,00.jpg"
height="19" alt="KONZERTE & EVENTS" /></a></li>
and the Validtor still says, it is valid XHTML 1.0 Strict, even the amersand is
used as Data.

If i got a page with another Error, the Validtor correctly says: Ampersand used
as Data.

If i don't have any Error, except the Ampersand, he says, it ist Valid.

Validating with the CSE HTML Validator Pro and the http://www.validome.org/:
Both got an error with the Amerpsand (and they are right, i think).

I think this must be a Bug with the Validator.

The URL above is a dynamic-page, so it could be, that in 1 hour there isn't any
ampersand, so i paste in here some source around of the error:

<div id="leftNav" class="submenu"><ul>
<li><a href="/ndr/ndr_pages_idx/0,2571,SPM902,00.html" title="KINO-TIPPS"><img
src="/container/ndr_style_images_gen_default/0,2718,52182,00.jpg" height="19"
alt="KINO-TIPPS" /></a></li>
<li><a href="/ndr/ndr_pages_idx/0,2571,SPM1476,00.html"
title="FILMFESTIVALS"><img
src="/container/ndr_style_images_gen_default/0,2718,105874,00.jpg" height="19"
alt="FILMFESTIVALS" /></a></li>
<li><a href="/ndr/ndr_pages_idx/0,2571,SPM904,00.html" title="FILME IM

<li><a href="/ndr/ndr_pages_idx/0,2571,SPM912,00.html" title="QUIZ &
SPIELE"><img src="/container/ndr_style_images_gen_default/0,2718,66004,00.jpg"
height="19" alt="QUIZ & SPIELE" /></a></li>
<li><a href="/ndr/ndr_pages_idx/0,2571,SPM1102,00.html" title="LEUTE"><img
src="/container/ndr_style_images_gen_default/0,2718,86754,00.jpg" height="19"

</ul></div>
