XHTML W3C Validator Error

Hi All,

I have in the process of XHTML validating my code and the W3C validator is presenting the following error:

Line 92, Column 142: general entity "itemid" not defined and no default entity.
This is usually a cascading error caused by a an undefined entity reference or use of an unencoded ampersand (&) in an URL or body text. See the previous message for further details.

Code:
&some_text&itemid=1" title="some text

Even though they provide an explanation, I really don't understand where I am going wrong. Please could anyone advise further?

Many thanks,

Rit

I think its probably where you have & instead of &

Thanks

Oh my God you are right... I didn't know after all these years that you are supposed to use & instead of & within URLs!.

Thanks Steggs,
