Stupid, stupid, stupid.

There is *NO* reason for the W3C to mistake that for an HTML entity.

PHPSESSID is being added by PHP in order to pass the session data through
the URL as a GET parameter.

You *could* turn that "off" in php.ini by changing the trans-sid setting... 
But then your site won't work for users who don't do cookies, which very
well may include the W3C validator.

Yes -- they are using HTTP.

Ignore it.

Actually, I think the W3C (stupid) recommendation is to use a different
character for the separator in your URLs.  They probably recommend &amp; or
/ or something.

If you want to waste hours making that happen, have at it.  There's a
php.ini setting that will let you change the separator that PHP will use
when it parses the URL, and then you can go change all your source code to
use "X" instead of & if you've got nothing better to do.

So far as I know, the *ONLY* thing this will affect is the W3C validator. 
There isn't *ONE* browser on the planet that will actually choke on the & in
your URL.  If you like jumping through hoops created by W3C for no apparent
reason, go for it. :-)
