hold on there, slugger... take a look at that link again:

it's validating the templates i built, *not* the evolt.org site...

now, the current site *does* throw these errors in the validator...

what bugs me is that a month (or so) ago i validated a bunch of my 
articles, and the evolt site (with my articles) validated... i don't 
recall having problems with character entities before...

and the validator UI looks different, which makes me think that 
perhaps the validator itself is different...

if so, we need to find out *why* entities are no longer valid, instead 
of just running around and changing code... otherwise, we;ll find 
ourselves implementing hacks (like images)...

*don't* do a damn thing to the code until we know *why* our 
entities no longer validate...
