[thelist] Mozilla doesn't like XHTML

I am not sure about the doctype but the '&' signs need to spelt out in order
for XHTML to work properly. Try using foo.php?a=1&b=2 instead and it
should take the whole line.

I am currently creating an application in XHMTL and have found no problems
at all with Mozilla.
