I had my site validating with the w3c html validator fine, until I put a 3x3 table in my main page containing category images and links to each category, now i get an error for each link because the links contain the character "&" and html thinks this is the beginning of an entity reference or something. I understand to correct this I have to write the links with "&" instead. The problem is when i do this in the plain text editor it wont let me save it????? any ideas anyone??
Thank you in advanceCode:cannot generate system identifier for general entity "cPath"....e-vstore.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=9">Vibrators</a><br /></td><td a An entity reference was found in the document, but there is no reference by that name defined. Often this is caused by misspelling the reference name, unencoded ampersands, or by leaving off the trailing semicolon (;). The most common cause of this error is unencoded ampersands in URLs as described by the WDG in "Ampersands in URLs". Entity references start with an ampersand (&) and end with a semicolon (;). If you want to use a literal ampersand in your document you must encode it as "&" (even inside URLs!). Be careful to end entity references with a semicolon or your entity reference may get interpreted in connection with the following text. Also keep in mind that named entity references are case-sensitive; &Aelig; and æ are different characters. If this error appears in some markup generated by PHP's session handling code, this article has explanations and solutions to your problem. Note that in most documents, errors related to entity references will trigger up to 5 separate messages from the Validator. Usually these will all disappear when the original problem is fixed.
