The name is only a warning, so if it is not convenient to change it; don't worry about it the page will validate with a warning.  

If you do not have control of the code that is generating the & then you will just have to live with it.  I have the same problem all the time with RSS feeds.  You either have to live with it or get rid of the source that is generating it.

I work in open source.I have no idea what you need to do to fix dotnetnuke code. So find the place in the dnn code where the name attribute is being generatd and either remove the name attribute or change it ti an id.  For the ampersand, find where it is being generated and change it to &

I cannot guarantee that the changes will not cause new problems, because I have not seen the code, and probably would not easily understand it if I did.
