[Solved] Html validating issues

  • # April 15, 2010 at 12:02 am

    Hello, I am trying to link to an image through a php file (i.e. http://mysite.com/picture.php?image=htt … &width=400)

    The ampersand (&) is causing validation issues.

    What can I do about it?

    Very easy!

    http://mysite.com/images/picture.jpg&width=400

    Well, the problem with that is it will send me to that exact link, it doesn’t encode the ampersand..

    The ampersand being encoded should have absolutely no effect on the link itself. If it does, then you have some programming stuff that you’ll have to deal with.

    The ONLY way to get that ampersand to validate is to properly encode it.

    Scratch that, you’re right…

    Thank you :)

    I had actually never tried it because that’s what I thought it would do..

    I really need to stop thinking I know what’s better when I’m asking someone else the question…

    No problemo!

    It’s a very weird problem to wrap your head around, for sure.
