Tony,

I noticed that some pages in the documentation contain literal ampresands & in URLs, instead of the correct &

Example:
... rston.net/counter.php?noshow&page=/uniface/3Tier(2).html

See
http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/problems.html#amp

This error confuses the validator, so other markup errors can stay undetected and also generates false positives, errors that are not really there.

Here are some pages that contain URLs with literal ampersands:

That's very frustrating as all those pages use to validate OK with htmlTidy. I've done a global replace and uploaded all the changed pages.
