Links with "&" don't validate XHTML 1.0 strict
I am using the following doctype
When I validate my page this link for a map to mapquest does not validate, all the ampersands return an error. Not sure how to fix this.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
Here is the message from the validator:
Line 52, Column 59: character "&" is the first character of a delimiter but occurred as data.
This message may appear in several cases:
You tried to include the "<" character in your page: you should escape it as "<"
You used an unescaped ampersand "&": this may be valid in some contexts, but it is recommended to use "&", which is always safe.
Another possibility is that you forgot to close quotes in a previous tag.
Thanks a lot
