  The problem with the Validator AND code of that page is
  in  &  character  which is interpreted as the start character
  for some entity name. =20
  One can avoid the error by replacing  & character within the=20
  URL string with  %26   (which is HEX code for &)

  So the above link will be changed to=20

  No need to do so
