[thelist] URL Not Validating

Hello listers.

I am trying to validate a page which includes the following link:


However, when I try to do that I receive the following errors:


Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML

*    Line 77, column 50:

  ... ristianbook.com/Christian/Books/product?event=AFF&p=1008468&item_no=CD
Error: unknown entity "p"

*    Line 77, column 50:

  ... k.com/Christian/Books/product?event=AFF&p=1008468&item_no=CD23122" tar
Error: unknown entity "item_no"

Sorry, this document does not validate as HTML 4.01 Transitional.


Obviously this has something to do with having ampersands in my URL, but I'm
not techie enough to know why. Is there a way I can make this validate and
still maintain the link?

Much appreciated,
